Endoscopic and Imaging Findings in Protein-losing Enteropathy
Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, 07/16/2012
Takenaka H et al. – Double–balloon enteroscopy (DBE) with pathologic findings of biopsy specimens was useful for the differential diagnosis of Protein–losing enteropathy (PLE). Noninvasive videocapsule endoscopy (VCE) might be preferable and useful for screening and follow up of PLE without stricture. Prognosis of a subgroup of PLE was poor regardless of treatment.
