Giant cell arteritis is a systemic inflammatory vasculitis, typically involving the superficial temporal arteries, but with possible ischemic and hemorrhagic cerebrovascular complications.
The case is reported of a patient with a clinical picture of giant cell arteritis, who had multiple occupational exposures to various infectious agents.
His initial favourable progress was followed by an atypical outcome. Despite immunosuppressive treatment, he developed fatal subarachnoid and intracerebral haemorrhages, possibly due to rupture of a microaneurysm of the posterior cerebral artery.

Introduction: Fundoplication is the most frequently used action in the surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). There are several types of fundoplication. The objective of our study was to identify complications after surgical treatment of GERD.
Material and Methods: We determined several parameters of the monitored and we recorded complications related to surgery: occurrence of surgical, early and late post-surgical complications.
Results: 52 patients (24 men and 28 women) with an average age of 53.3 years were included. The most frequently chosen type of fundoplication was Nissen-Rossetti. The most frequently occurring subjective post-surgery difficulties were temporal dysphagia (11.5%), sensation of nausea and vomiting after eating (3.8 %), pain in the surgical wound, and dyspnoea occurring in all patients after thoracotomy. Early post-surgery complication developed in 6 patients (11.5 %)
Conclusion: Occurrence of complications in the group monitored by us was up to 11.5 % and perioperative mortality was 0 %. Hiatal hernia is frequently found in patients with GERD and it is considered to be one of the major causes for the development of this disease.
