Enteropathies Associated with Chronic Diarrhea and Malabsorption of Infancy and Childhood

  • Pierre Russo

Abstract

The aims of this chapter are to review the enteropathies that cause chronic, severe diarrhea and malabsorption in childhood, explore their pathophysiology, and illustrate their appearance on intestinal specimens. Endoscopic gastrointestinal biopsies constitute an important portion of the pathologist’s workload, accounting for nearly one-third of specimens accessioned yearly by the pathology department at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The widespread use of endoscopy and gastrointestinal biopsies in current clinical practice presents the pathologist with a diversity of intestinal mucosal appearances corresponding to disease states of variable clinical severity, requiring close collaboration between clinician and pathologist for optimal interpretation.
