Abstract

Radiological findings of 2 patients with immunoproliferative small intestinal disease were studied. One of the cases was associated withα-chain disease. Both patients complained of severe diarrhea, and diagnosis was made by endoscopic biopsy of the duodenum and jejunum. Double-contrast studies of the small intestine and hypotonic duodenographies in these patients revealed thickened folds and innumerable fine granular elevations without ulcerations or luminal narrowings. Double-contrast studies are one of the most important examinations in the diagnosis of this disorder.

Key words
