Endoscopic appearance of the jejunum in a patient with gluten-sensitive enteropathy and a gastrojejunostomy
- 19 Downloads
The jejunum in a patient with gastroenterostomy and gluten-sensitive enteropathy was examined endoscopically. The mucosa was diffusely erythematous without ulceration or friability. Valvulae conniventes were present and normal in number and appearance. Gastrointestinal endoscopy and endoscopic biopsy were proven to be useful procedures in the evaluation of patients with postgastrectomy diarrhea and malabsorption.
