Malabsorption Syndrome

  • Mucosal diseases causing Generalized Malabsorption:
  1. Celiac Disease
  2. IPSID
  3. Lymphoma
  4. Collagen sprue
  5. Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis
  6. Non-Granulomatous ulcerative Jejunoileitis
  7. Systemic mastocytosis
  8. Lymphangiectasia
  9. Crohn’s Disease
  10. Radiation enteritis
  11. Chronic mesenteric ischemia

 

  •                                   D2 Biopsy in Malabsorption
  • – Diagnostic yield of biopsy is influenced by the distribution of histologic abnormalities
  • – This histologic abnormalities is diffuse in some diseases and patchy in other diseases
  • – Diseases associated with diffuse alteration of small intestinal mucosa
  •                        • Tropical Sprue
  •                        • Abetalipoproteinemia
  •                        • Immunodeficiency
  •                       • Collagenous sprue
  •                       • Whipple’s disease
  • – Diseases associated with Patchy alteration of small intestinal mucosa
  •                       • Primary lymphangiectasia
  •                       • Celiac disease when the disease subtle, although the disorder usually affects the small bowel diffusely
  •                       • Crohn’s disease
  •                      • Eosinophilic gastroenteritis
  •                      • Lymphoma
  •                      • Parasites and worms (Giardia, strongyloidiasis)

 

  • –  Malabsorption disorders that can cause Ulceration/Stricture:
  •                    • Crohn’s disease
  •                    • Radiation enteritis
  •                   • Celiac Disease
