Chronic diarrhea is a common clinical problem in gastroenterology practice and often difficult to diagnose the cause. Presence of villous atrophy in these subjects is not specific as differential diagnosis can be broad. Drug-induced diarrhea is often overlooked during the evaluation. We report a short series of such challenging small bowel diarrhea secondary to olmesartan-related sprue-like enteropathy.
