85 Possible Causes for Villous Blunting

  • Tropical Sprue

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

  • HIV-Associated Enteropathy

    As indicated by villous blunting and inflammation on duodenal histology, those with diarrhea and parasites showed the most severe damage.[ajtmh.org] blunting and atrophy, crypt hypertrophy, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes, variably increased mononuclear cell in lamina propria.[pathologyoutlines.com] […] edematous edges Histologically show granulation tissue with mixed acute and chronic inflammatory infiltrate often with eosinophils AIDS enteropathy HIV enteropathy causes villous[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Hypersensitivity

    blunting (Marsh 3) or, if accompanied by elevated tTG autoantibodies, crypt hyperplasia and intraepithelial lymphocytosis (Marsh 2) [ 18 ].[mdpi.com] Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, as those participants who, after being on a gluten-containing diet for a minimum of 2 months, had biopsies demonstrating either villous[mdpi.com]

  • Esophagitis

    Small doses can lead to villous blunting and minor alterations in mucosal formation, but larger doses can denude extensive regions of the mucosa.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Diarrhea with Villous Atrophy

    The villous architecture is within normal limits (no apparent villous blunting).[librepathology.org] Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed villous blunting and atrophy, with increased intraepithelial lymphocytes.[ptcommunity.com] Yet, small bowel biopsies revealed some degree of inflammation sometimes with mild villous blunting in 70% of cases.[celiac.com]

  • Gastritis

    blunting and mild subepithelial collagen accumulation, terminal ileum with patchy enteritis with lymphoid hyperplasia, and pan-colonic diffuse moderate chronic active colitis[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] The changes described have included multiple tiny shallow ulcers, crypt abscess formation, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes, and villous blunting.[nature.com] […] esophageal histology, mild/moderate chronic active gastritis with patchy subepithelial collagen deposition (some areas 30 microns), moderate chronic duodenitis with patchy villous[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Allergic Gastritis

    Patchy duodenal villous blunting was seen in 1 patient with AEG and PLE and 1 with AEG. CONCLUSIONS.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Malabsorption and villous blunting do not seem to be the cause of hypoalbuminemia and anemia in those patients with AEG and PLE.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Asthma

  • Intestinal Lymphoid Hyperplasia

    Path showed total villous blunting with atrophy in the second and third portion of the duodenum. The stomach antrum biopsy revealed lymphocytic gastritis without H.[healio.com] In small bowel mild villous blunting and atrophy without crypt hyperplasia was seen. The number of intraepithelial lymphocytes was within normal range.[ijpmonline.org] […] atrophy/blunting.[medresearch.in]
