Adenocarcinoma of an ileostomy in a case of Hirschprung’s disease with retroviral disease
AbstractThe number of ileostomies created for benign diseases such as familial adenomatous polyposis and ulcerative colitis is increasing. Long-term ileostomies are prone to develop various complications over time. Ileostomy site carcinoma is a well-established complication in ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis that have undergone total colectomy. However, no case of ileostomy site carcinoma has been described in a patient with Hirschprung’s disease. We present the first case of adenocarcinoma at an ileostomy site in a patient with Hirschprung’s disease with retroviral disease.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
