Abstract

Host of the duodenal diverticulum are asymptomatic and located on the second part of the duodenum; these diverticula may induce major haemorrhage on rare occasions. We report on two patients who presented with massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding originating from a duodenal diverticulum. One patient was successfully treated by endoscopy and the other patient required diverticulectomy with successful outcome.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
