LATE Dumping

Early dumping is more common. Systemic manifestations include palpitations, tachycardia, fatigue, a need to lie down following meals, flushing or pallor, diaphoresis, lightheadedness, hypotension, headache, and possibly syncope.

Abdominal symptoms include early satiety, epigastric fullness or pain, diarrhea, nausea, cramps, bloating, and borborygmi. Early dumping begins within 30 minutes following a meal and is attributable to bowel distention, relative hypovolemia, GI hormone hypersecretion, and autonomic dysregulation.

Late dumping is characterized by symptoms that occur 1 to 3 hours postprandially. Symptoms of late dumping consist of perspiration, faintness, decreased concentration, and altered levels of consciousness, among others.

The most common symptoms attributed to chronic bile gastritis are abdominal pain and bilious vomiting. 

Unlike afferent limb syndrome, the pain does not resolve after vomiting. Weight loss and anemia are common.

Symptoms of Roux syndrome include abdominal pain and distention, postprandial bloating, nausea, and vomiting. Typically the vomitus contains solid food and is nonbilious.

WHO Informal Working Group on Echinococcosis (WHO-IWGE) classification
Group 1: Active group – cysts larger than 2 cm and often fertile.
Group 2: Transition group – cysts starting to degenerate and entering a transitional stage because of host resistance or treatment, but may contain viable protoscolices.
Group 3: Inactive group – degenerated, partially or totally calcified cysts; unlikely to contain viable protoscolices.
