Improvement of pneumatosis
cystoides intestinalis after steroid tapering in a patient with bronchial
asthma: a case report
We report the case of a patient
who was diagnosed as having pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis while being
treated with prednisolone for bronchial asthma. Even before we had experienced
a case of this, the relationship between pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis and
prednisolone was unclear. In this case, pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis was
improved with the reduction of prednisolone, and therefore we thought a direct
relationship between pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis and prednisolone might
become clear, such as whether it is dose dependent.
A 62-year-old Japanese woman had
been treated for bronchial asthma for approximately 40 years. She
presented with abdominal distension, and a radiographic examination showed
intraperitoneal free gas and intramural gas, suggestive of pneumatosis
cystoides intestinalis. However, when her prednisolone dose was decreased from
30mg to 0mg for approximately a year because of improvement in her asthma
symptoms, her abdominal symptom resolved, and the frequency of her bowel
movements returned to normal.
Amelioration of pneumatosis
cystoides intestinalis was observed with tapering of the prednisolone,
suggesting that prednisolone may have been involved in the pathogenesis of
pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis in this patient.
