13 Possible Causes for Intestinal Biopsy showing Partial Villous Atrophy, Patchy Areas of Villous Atrophy

  • 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]

  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

    Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is described as the accumulation of a large number of bacteria in this organ, which should not normally be located in the structure. There are often underlying diseases and factors associated with the development of this condition. The clinical picture is variable. Some patients[…][symptoma.com]

  • Celiac Disease

    Those with NCGS revealed normal to mildly inflamed mucosa (Marsh 0 to 1), while all CD patients showed partial or subtotal villous atrophy with crypt hyperplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the work of Sapone and coworkers all subjects (11 patients with NCGS, 13 with CD, and seven controls), underwent upper duodenal endoscopy for small intestinal biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Childhood Celiac Disease

    Childhood celiac disease may lead to a failure of statural growth. After institution of a gluten-free diet most patients exhibit catch-up growth. Catch-up growth is a remarkable phenomenon characterized by a supranormal height velocity. One of the hypothetical mechanisms of catch-up growth is that an increased[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cryptosporidiosis

    Diarrhea caused by Cryptosporidium sp is frequent in patients with AIDS, but involvement of other organs of the digestive tract is uncommon. We report a case of Cryptosporidium-associated obstruction of the biliary tract mimicking cancer of the head of the pancreas in a 43-year-old woman with AIDS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Viszeralmedizin. 2014 Jun; 30(3): 167–172. Language: English German This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Summary Background Whipple's disease (WD) is rarely the cause of a malabsorption syndrome. The disease is a chronic infection of the intestinal mucosa with the bacterium Tropheryma whipplei, which[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Histological changes should show increased number of intraepithelial lymphocytes, elongated crypts and at least partial villous atrophy [ 10 ].[mdpi.com] Finally, a confirmed diagnosis requires a small intestinal biopsy.[mdpi.com]

  • Chronic Diarrhea with Villous Atrophy

    Intestinal biopsies were obtained in six patients and showed active chronic inflammation in three patients, partial villous atrophy in two patients, and eosinophilic infiltrate[saudijgastro.com]

  • Dermatitis Herpetiformis

    Gastro-intestinal endoscopy with multiple duodenal biopsies shows partial or complete villous atrophy in two thirds of cases, intraepithelial lymphocyte infiltrate in the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Small bowel biopsy As in CD, patients with DH show intestinal involvement that can be documented by histopathology in most cases.[dovepress.com] The features include partial-to-total villous atrophy, elongated crypts, decreased villus/crypt ratio, increased mitotic index in the crypts, increased IELs density, increased[dovepress.com]
