  1. INTRODUCTION. Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) refers to the presence of gas within the wall of the small or large intestine. Intramural gas can also affect the stomach, but this condition is referred to as gastric pneumatosis [].Since its first description, PI has appeared in the literature under many names, including pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis, intramural gas, pneumatosis coli.
  2. Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis is a rare finding of intramural gasfilled cysts in the bowel wall and sometimes free air in the abdomen. A few conditions are reported to cause this disease, one.
  3. Pneumatosis intestinalis occurs in 2 forms. Primary pneumatosis intestinalis (15% of cases) is a benign idiopathic condition in which multiple thin-walled cysts develop in the submucosa or subserosa of the colon. Usually, this form has no associated symptoms, and the cysts may be found incidentally through radiography or endoscopy.
  4. Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) is a term used to describe the presence of submucosal and subserosal gas in the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. 1 PI is a radiological finding and not a diagnosis. It is usually diagnosed by plain abdominal radiography or CT scanning, but it could also be documented by MRI and ultrasonography. 2–4 PI often has a dramatic radiological appearance and is most.

Journal of Medical Case Reports , doi: / 7. Holt S, Stewart I, Heading R. Resolution of primary pneumatosis coli.
  6. Mar 10,  · Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI), defined as the presence of gas in the bowel wall, and portal venous gas (PVG) are relatively rare radiological findings. Although several chemotherapeutic agents and anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents are reported to be associated with PI and PVG, an association with anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) agents has not been described .
  7. Pneumatosiscystoides intestinalis is a disease occurring rarely in man but identified somewhat more frequently in animals, particularly swine. Other names applied to the condition include intestinal emphysema, peritoneal pneumatosis, pneumatosis cystoides intestinorum, and gas cysts .
  8. 1 Introduction. Pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) and hepatic portal venous gas (HPVG) are abnormal accumulations of gas in the intestinal wall and portal vein, respectively. Bacterial translocation (BT) is defined as the passage of bacteria and bacterial endotoxins from the gut to other organs. Experimental studies have suggested that PI, HPVG, and BT share a similar pathogenetic mechanism in.
  9. Jun 26,  · Infectious pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis is usually caused by gas-forming bacteria. This is a relatively rare entity characterized by mucosal and submucosal inflammation and bacterial infiltration of most of the gastric wall layers on autopsy specimens.
