Comment

This article seemed to be an interesting and different kind of story to post about.  It turned out to be an interesting lesson in searching technique as well when I got curious to see what had been published about gut fermentation syndrome.  Here is what I discovered.

The news report that started this.

Woman Claims Her Body Brews Alcohol, Has DUI Charge Dismissed

(CNN) Imagine being charged with a DUI when it’s been hours since you’ve had a drink, only to later discover that your body brews its own alcohol.

.

That’s what happened to an upstate New York woman when she blew a blood alcohol level more than four times the legal limit. Just before Christmas in Hamburg, New York, a judge dismissed the charges after being presented with evidence the woman suffers from “auto-brewery syndrome.”

.

“I had never heard of auto-brewery syndrome before this case,” attorney Joseph Marusak told CNN on the condition his client’s identity remain anonymous. “But I knew something was amiss when the hospital police took the woman to wanted to release her immediately because she wasn’t exhibiting any symptoms.”

.

“That prompts me to get on the Internet and see if there is any sort of explanation for a weird reading,” adds Marusak. “Up pops auto-brewery syndrome and away we go.”

.

“I’m in touch with about 30 people who believe they have this same syndrome,” said Panola College Dean of Nursing Barbara Cordell, who has studied the syndrome for years. “They can function at alcohol levels such as 0.03 and 0.04 when the average person would be comatose or dying. Part of the mystery of this syndrome is how they can have these extremely high levels and still be walking around and talking.”

.

Extremely rare condition

.

Also known as gut-fermentation syndrome, this rare medical condition can occur when abnormal amounts of gastrointestinal yeast convert common food carbohydrates into ethanol. The process is believed to take place in the small bowel, and is vastly different from the normal gut fermentation in the large bowel that gives our bodies energy.

.

First described in 1912 as “germ carbohydrate fermentation,” it was studied in the 1930s and ’40s as a contributing factor to vitamin deficiencies and irritable bowel syndrome. Cases involving the yeast Candida albicans and Candida krusei have popped up in Japan, and in 2013 Panola College Dean of Nursing Barbara Cordell documented the case of a 61-year-old man who had frequent bouts of unexplained drunkenness for years before being diagnosed with an overabundance of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or brewer’s yeast, the same yeast used to make beer.

DATABASE SEARCH RESULTS AND LEARNING FROM THEM

In observing search results for gut fermentation syndrome, a synonym for this condition, auto brewery syndrome, was also discovered with an interesting lesson to be relearned.

Comment

A reader finding the CNN article about the woman in New York at the top of this post may have never heard of this medical disorder and want to learn more.  If that reader found the auto brewery syndrome alternative name for this condition and ignored it, he would have this result in Google Scholar regarding sudden death.

Your search – “gut-fermentation syndrome” AND (“sudden death” OR “sudden infant death”) – did not match any articles.

Failure to add new terminology into a search can limit ones findings and miss important content.  Searching “AUTO BREWERY syndrome” AND (“sudden death” OR “sudden infant death”) in Google Scholar finds 30 results. Furthermore two of these articles are cited by from 22 to 25 other articles which may lead to further research studies that discuss this syndrome.  This is why it is very important to include and text search all found variants of terminology for a topic one is doing research about.

Some of the sources found searching

Furthermore, one may be searching this topic using both phrases in Summon, perhaps because this research is being conducted for use in medical or legal cases and needs to be vetted for source quality.  If one limits the Summon search to journal articles of which there are 35, one can then limit those found articles to the ones that are peer reviewed and learn that 29 of those are in fact peer reviewed according to Summon.  One can then search these article titles, if desired, in Google Scholar to learn what additional sources have cited these peer reviewed journal articles.

This link finds Google Scholar search results for a title search of this article:

About 30 results

.

Searching without the article subtitle leads to this result.

“Auto-Brewery Syndrome in a Child With Short Gut Syndrome”

About 35 results

This is a case where too much information perhaps diminishes the amount of content one finds in the search result.  Some citing sources may not have included the subtitle in citing this source.

A search of these concepts in the TRIP database found a null result and so there is no evidence based sources to be found using TRIP on this subject as described by these two phrases. One can check further in the medical literature discovered to find out if a technical medical term or phrase also exists for this condition.

.

One more venture, one can add evidence based to the search in Google Scholar and get this result:
