2,391 Possible Causes for Folic Acid Decreased, Patchy Areas of Villous Atrophy, Xeroderma

  • Tropical Sprue

    Furthermore, EME identified patchy areas of partial villous atrophy in 16 patients (5 CD and 11 TS) in whom standard endoscopy was normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] EME could help identify patchy areas of partial mucosal atrophy, potentially reducing the need for blind biopsies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: EME identifies 3 characteristic endoscopic patterns that correlate with the presence of villous atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
