Duodenal adenocarcinoma is a rare disease whose symptoms are usually vomit, weight loss and lack of appetite; appearing more frequently in men in their sixties. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is the technique chosen for its diagnosis, also relying on other techniques such as endoscopic ultrasonography or computed tomography for the extension study. In this regard we report the case of a patient diagnosed of bulbar duodenal adenocarcinoma in our hospital.

Collagenous sprue is a rare disease that goes with persistent diarrhea, weight loss and bad absortion, because it affects the small intestine, mainly duodenum and proximal jejunum. Diagnosis is made by having clinical signs and histological proof of atrophy and subepitelial deposit of collagenous material. Its etiology is not known completely, it is proposed that the origin is autoimmune because its relationship with celiac disease. Also there is a proposal that is a celiac evolution to gluten free diet. Is because this is not clear that we present a case of a patient with bad absorptive diarrhea and a clinical expression of collagenous sprue, that had a great clinical response to corticosteroids with home parenteral nutrition center.

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most common infectious diseases observed in primary care; up to one-third of women will have at least one symptomatic UTI by age 24, and more than one-half of women will be affected by the end of life. In addition, UTIs represent 40% of nosocomial infections, and being usually associated with urinary catheters. Although urine cultures would not be indicated in all cases, these samples are the most abundant in the laboratories of clinical microbiology. Thus, the working protocols applied to these samples have an important impact in the performance of the laboratory. The samples are collected by mid stream urine, and 60-70% of them are negative culture. At present, several commercial systems have been introduced in order to simplify and automate this process. A urine culture with 10(5) CFU/ml has classically been considered as positive, although lower counts are valued in certain clinical settings. Factors related to this count e.g. methods to obtain urine, conservation of the sample or use of chemical preservatives as well as low counts are critical points to be discussed in detail. The development of antimicrobial resistance logically affects uropathogens, mainly Escherichia coli, which remains the most frequently isolated in urine cultures. The aim of this paper is to review the most innovating aspects influencing the microbiological diagnosis of UTI.
