59 Possible Causes for Villous Blunting

  • Delayed Male Puberty

    Duodenal sections showed completely flat with total villous blunting and crypt hyperplasia. There was increased number of mitotic figures in the crypts.[] Duodenal sections showed completely flat with total villous blunting and crypt hyperplasia Figure 3. Colon sections presented regular glands and surface epithelium.[]

  • Immunodeficiency Syndrome, Variable

    In small bowel mild villous blunting and atrophy without crypt hyperplasia was seen. The number of intraepithelial lymphocytes was within normal range.[]

  • Astrovirus

    The appearance of a small intestinal biopsy did not suggest graft versus host disease, but demonstrated villous blunting, irregularity of surface epithelial cells, and an[]

  • Tropical Sprue

    The ileal mucosa displayed more severe villous blunting with higher Marsh stages than in the corresponding duodenum from 5 patients.[] No case of complete villous blunting (Marsh stage 3c) was identified in tropical sprue , contrasting with 25% in gluten-sensitive enteropathy cases.[] The biopsy will show variable degrees of atrophy of the small intestine with villous blunting and inflammation.[]

  • Intestinal Perforation

    Evidence of villous blunting and elongation of the crypts was observed, which suggests chronic mucosal injury.[]

  • Giardia Lamblia

    blunting, increased inflammatory cells, organisms are teardrop (pear) shaped with paired nuclei in lumen between villi Size of organism is similar to enterocyte nuclei Microscopic[] […] antigens in stool Gross images Images hosted on PathOut server: Contributed by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Giardia Microscopic (histologic) description Variable villous[]

  • Secondary Amyloidosis

    Biopsies from the terminal ileum showed mild villous blunting, fibrosis of submucosa, and eosinophilic material that stained positive with Congo red within the lamina propria[] Endoscopy of the duodenum showing blunted villi. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy identified gastric mucosal atrophy and blunted villi in the duodenum (Figure 1).[] Duodenal mucosal biopsies showed preserved villous architecture with some deposition of eosinophilic material within the lamina propria and vessel walls.[]

  • Autoimmune Enteropathy

    In 5 cases (20%), the duodenum exhibited changes indistinguishable from celiac disease, with villous blunting and intraepithelial lymphocytosis.[] Endoscopically, the duodenum typically exhibits villous blunting with partial or complete villous blunting, deep crypt lymphocytosis, increased apoptotic bodies, and minimal[] The diagnosis was confirmed with microscopy, showing shortened villi, villous blunting and hyperplasia of crypts in both patients.[]

  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

    The findings may resemble those of celiac disease, which includes villous blunting, crypt hyperplasia, and increased lymphocytes in the lamina propria.[]
