Abstract
The presence of chronic diarrhea requires a prompt diagnostic strategy in order to avoid risks of malnutrition and electrolytic disturbances. Two different clinical situations, i.e. collagen colitis and secretory diarrhea, exemplify the diagnostic evaluation of a single symptom. This non exhaustive review should lead to a diagnostic strategy of chronic diarrhea.
