  • Chronic Diarrhea due to Glucoamylase Deficiency

    Since these initial reports, more precise identification of disorders that cause intractable diarrhea of infancy has led to the use of prolonged parenteral nutrition, immunosuppression[clinicalgate.com]

  • Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome

    This could be in the form of hematorrhea (bloody diarrhea) during infancy, increased bruising, frequent, severe nose bleeds, and sometimes bleeding in the brain.[wiskott.org] Prolonged and severe bleeding that can occur spontaneously or with minor injuries due to a microthrombocytopenia.[wiskott.org]

  • Trypsinogen Deficiency

    After a prolonged alimentary fast of up to 26 days on intravenous alimentation, two patients with intractable diarrhea of infancy showed improvement in the activities of enterokinase[pediatrics.aappublications.org] The enterokinase activity in celiac disease is near normal in contrast to the marked reduction noted in intractable diarrhea of infancy even though the intestinal mucosa shows[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

    We report the diagnostic difficulties involved in a HIV infected patient with prolonged diarrhea associated with eosinophilia.[ispub.com] Introduction Eosinophils may accumulate in the colon in a variety of disorders, including eosinophilic gastroenteritis, allergic colitis of infancy, infections, drug reactions[ispub.com]
