A 54-year-old man was referred to our hospital because of 2 years' duration of extended multiple nodules with abscess and fistula with pus discharge in the gluteal and perianal regions (Fig. 1a). Laboratory data identified inflammatory reaction (WBC, 11430 /μl, and C-reactive protein, 4.5 mg/dl) and anemia (hemoglobin levels, 8.6 g/dl). Serum amyloid A protein was elevated (50.2 μg/ml). Ileocolonoscopy showed diffuse coarse mucosa with numerous diminutive nodules throughout the colorectum (Fig. 1b). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

- Comparison of Cleaning up Eyelids after Taking off False Eyelashes between Eye Makeup Remover Alone and Eye Makeup Remover with Ocusoft®. [Journal Article]
- JMJ Med Assoc Thai 2016; 99 Suppl 4:S59-64
- CONCLUSIONS: Most of HD were diagnosed and treated in the newborn period. TERPT is safe and also feasible in all pediatric age groups. The associated DS are related to have more morbidity. HAEC is the most common complication. Even though there are limitations in the diagnostic investigation those did not achieve the standard diagnosis of HD in this study; but the outcomes are not different from the reviews. The improvement in laboratories and pathological investigation services will reflect the surgical service and outcome of pediatric HD in this region. The awareness of post-operative complications will lead to the prevention and early management in the postoperative period.
- Review article: pathogenesis of Crohn's perianal fistula-understanding factors impacting on success and failure of treatment strategies. [Review]
- APAliment Pharmacol Ther 2018 Jun 19
- CONCLUSIONS: For an intervention or combination of interventions to succeed, multiple factors must be addressed. We hypothesise that correct, timely and complete attention to all of these factors in a multimodal approach represents a new direction that may enable the creation of an effective treatment algorithm for Crohn's anal fistula.

Perianal abscess and fistula-in-ano are well-described in the pediatric population. They are most common in infants less than 1 year of age and often resolve with oral antibiotics; occasionally they require drainage or fistulotomy. The etiology is commonly associated with cryptoglandular obstruction and subsequent infection, however alternative diagnoses should be considered in cases of recurrent abscesses and fistulae that are refractory to standard treatments. In this report, we present the case of an 8-year-old boy with a complex, recurrent fistula-in-ano that resulted from a rare congenital perirectal dermoid cyst.
- Innovation in the imaging perianal fistula: a step towards personalised medicine. [Journal Article]
- TATherap Adv Gastroenterol 2018; 11:1756284818775060
- CONCLUSIONS: MRI is the reference standard for assessment of perianal fistula, defining anatomy and guiding surgery. However, communication of findings between radiologist and surgeon remains challenging. Feasibility of 3D reconstructions of complex perianal fistula is realized, with the potential to improve surgical planning, communication with patients, and augment training.

- IJInt J Colorectal Dis 2018 May 29
- CONCLUSIONS: Transrectal internal abscess drainage is a safe and highly successful procedure for treatment of retrorectal abscess, with very low risk of postoperative fecal incontinence. Inflammatory bowel disease and immunosuppressives have a negative impact on the healing process.

- JCJ Crohns Colitis 2018 May 25
- CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates feasibility, safety and importantly an improvement in patient reported outcomes in a series of patients undergoing VAAFT for complex Crohn's anal fistula. VAAFT reduces the main symptoms (pain and discharge) in patients with complex refractory anal fistulas.

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory, and recurrent skin disease. Surgical excision of wounds appears to be the only curative treatment for the prevention of recurrence of moderate to severe stages. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a standard reference examination for the detection of HS peri-anal inflammatory fistula. In this case study, the use of real-time medical infrared thermography, in combination with MRI as appropriate imaging, is proposed. The aim is to assist surgeons in the pre- and peri-surgical management of severe perianal hidradenitis suppurativa with the intent to ensure that all diseased lesions were removed during surgery and therefore to limit recurrence. The results show that medical infrared thermography (MIT), coupled with MRI, could be highly effective strategy to address thermally distinguished health tissues and inflammatory sites during excision, as characterised by differential increases in temperature. Medical infrared thermography could be used to check the total excision of inflammatory lesions as a noninvasive method that is not painful, not radiant, and is easily transportable during surgery. Ultimately, this method could be complementary with MRI in providing clinicians with objective data on the status of tissues below the perianal skin surface in the pre- and per-operating management of severe hidradenitis suppurativa.
