collagenous sprue,

Thomas C Smyrk
Celiac disease features duodenal intraepithelial lymphocytosis with or without villous atrophy. Lymphocytosis without villous atrophy will be proven to represent celiac disease in 10% to 20% of cases. The differential diagnosis is broad: Helicobacter pylori gastritis, NSAID injury and bacterial overgrowth are considerations. Lymphocytosis with villous atrophy is very likely to be celiac disease, but there are mimics to consider, including collagenous sprue, tropical sprue, drug injury, and common variable immunodeficiency...

A 19-year-old young male presented with abdominal pain and constipation. Subsequent EGD showed nodular gastric mucosa with simple gastric aspirate demonstrating acidic pH of 2.0. The gastric biopsy showed thick subepithelial band of about 15 microns that was confirmed to be collagen on Masson's trichrome stain along with inflammatory infiltrate. Colonoscopy and capsule endoscopy findings were unremarkable as well as the biopsy of the colon. Collagenous gastritis is a rare histopathological entity characterized by the presence of thick subepithelial collagen band of thickness greater than 10 microns along with intraepithelial lymphocytes and lamina propria lymphoplasmacytic and eosinophilic infitrates...

OBJECTIVE: Collagenous sprue (CS) is a rare form of small bowel enteropathy characterised by a thickened basement membrane and is, in most of the literature, reported as part of coeliac disease. Multiple treatment strategies are suggested in CS, but there is no standardised therapy. The aim of this series is to describe 4 cases of CS and to propose thioguanine (6-TG) treatment. DESIGN: We reviewed 4 cases of CS. Data were obtained from our prospective database of patients referred to our coeliac centre...

Collagenous sprue (CS) is a distinct clinicopathological disorder histologically defined by a thickened subepithelial band (Freeman, 2011). It is a rare condition which has been recently observed in a significant proportion of sprue-like enteropathy associated with olmesartan, a novel entity described by Rubio-Tapia et al. in 2012. CS is historically associated with a poor prognosis (Marthey et al., 2014). However, histological and clinical improvements have been described in most studies with concomitant usage of corticosteroids and/or gluten-free diet (Marthey et al...

Hypogammaglobulinemia/common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) may lead to disruption of the gut mucosal immune barrier. Collagenous infiltrative disorders of the intestinal tract (colitis, gastritis, sprue) constitute a relatively new spectrum of gastrointestinal disorders. Our aims were (1) to determine the association between immunoglobulin deficiency state like CVID and collagenous infiltrative disorders of the gut and (2) to study the clinic-pathologic characteristics and treatment outcomes in these patients...

Sprue-like enteropathy associated with the angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) olmesartan was first described in 2012, and a number of cases have since been reported. This syndrome is characterized by severe diarrhea and sprue-like histopathologic findings in the intestine, often with increased subepithelial collagen. The incidence of this adverse drug reaction is not entirely clear, although it is thought to be rare. It is also not well established if other ARBs cause such a syndrome, although case reports suggest they can...

A 56-year-old Caucasian woman presented with epigastric pain, watery diarrhoea, bloating and flatulence following treatment with duloxetine and venlafaxine for anxiety and depression. Abdominal examination was benign. Blood work revealed haemoglobin of 96 g/L (115-160 g/L), iron 6 μmol/L (10-33 μmol/L), transferrin saturation 0.08 (0.20-0.55), ferritin 26 μg/L (15-180 μg/L), albumin 46 g/L (35-50 g/L), pre-albumin 293 mg/L (170-370 mg/L), total IgA 2.64 g/L (0.78-3.58 g/L) and anti-tTG IgA 5 units (<20 units)...

At an incidence of 1:500, celiac disease (formerly sprue) is an important differential diagnosis in patients with malabsorption, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea and food intolerances. Celiac disease can induce a broad spectrum of both gastrointestinal and extraintestinal symptoms, e.g. dermatitis herpetiformis (Duhring's disease). A variety of oligo- and asymptomatic courses (e.g. anemia, osteoporosis, depression) through to refractory collagenic celiac disease are seen. In HLA-DQ2 and -8 predisposed individuals, celiac disease is provoked by contact with wheat gliadin fractions through a predominantly Th1 immune response and an accompanying Th2 response, which can eventually lead to villous atrophy...

OBJECTIVE: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), microscopic colitis and celiac disease are all diseases with worldwide distribution and increased incidence has been reported from many areas. There is a shortage of studies investigating the occurrence of these diseases in the same individual and whether those affected demonstrate any particular phenotype. The aim of the study was to describe the concomitant incidence of microscopic colitis and celiac disease in a population-based IBD cohort...

Collagenous gastritis is a rare disease characterized by the subepithelial deposition of collagen bands thicker than 10 μm and the infiltration of inflammatory mononuclear cells in the lamina propria. Collagenous colitis and collagenous sprue have similar histological characteristics to collagenous gastritis and are thought to be part of the same disease entity. However, while collagenous colitis has become more common in the field of gastroenterology, presenting with clinical symptoms of chronic diarrhea in older patients, collagenous gastritis is rare...

We present a rare case of collagenous sprue in an elderly woman with significant weight loss and malnutrition. Collagenous sprue is a rare, female-predominant and immune-mediated gastrointestinal disease that can affect any part of the gut, and shares a strong association with Coeliac disease. The diagnosis is confirmed by gut histopathology demonstrating a subepithelial collagenous band and inflammatory infiltrate in the lamina propria. The pathogenesis and natural history is poorly elucidated, and treatment involves a gluten-free diet and/or immunomodulatory therapy...

Collagenous sprue (CS) is a severe malabsorption disorder, the etiology of which has not been well defined. Herein, we report the case of a 3-month-old infant with CS who responded to steroid and immunomodulator treatment and presented a thick subepithelial collagen band. A 3-month-old Japanese girl presented with severe watery diarrhea that lasted for 2 weeks. She was admitted to the referring hospital, but symptomatic improvement was not achieved with fasting and rehydration. Gastroduodenal endoscopy showed an edematous duodenal mucosal surface...

Collagenous sprue is a rare disease that goes with persistent diarrhea, weight loss and bad absortion, because it affects the small intestine, mainly duodenum and proximal jejunum. Diagnosis is made by having clinical signs and histological proof of atrophy and subepitelial deposit of collagenous material. Its etiology is not known completely, it is proposed that the origin is autoimmune because its relationship with celiac disease. Also there is a proposal that is a celiac evolution to gluten free diet. Is because this is not clear that we present a case of a patient with bad absorptive diarrhea and a clinical expression of collagenous sprue, that had a great clinical response to corticosteroids with home parenteral nutrition center...

Collagenous sprue is a clinicopathological entity with an unknown etiology. Its clinical features include progressive malabsorption, diarrhea, weight loss, unresponsiveness to treatment, and high mortality rates. The age interval of collagenous sprue is quite broad and ranges between 2 and 85 years. As far as to our knowledge, the presented case is the first reported case in infancy.

Collagenous gastritis is a rare condition defined histologically by a superficial subepithelial collagen layer. This study further characterizes the morphologic spectrum of collagenous gastritis by evaluating a multi-institutional series of 40 patients (26 female and 14 male). The median age at onset was 16 years (range 3-89 years), including 24 patients (60%) under age 18. Twelve patients (30%) had associated celiac disease, collagenous sprue, or collagenous colitis. Hematoxylin and eosin slides were reviewed in biopsies from all patients and tenascin, gastrin, eotaxin, and IgG4/IgG immunohistochemical stains were applied to a subset...

Spontaneous free perforation of the small intestine is uncommon, especially if there is no prior history of visceral trauma. However, free, even recurrent, perforation may complicate a defined and established clinical disorder, such as Crohn's disease. In addition, free perforation may be the initial clinical presentation of an occult intestinal disorder, such as a lymphoma complicating celiac disease, causing diffuse peritonitis and an acute abdomen. Initial diagnosis of the precise cause may be difficult, but now has been aided by computerized tomographic imaging...
