L'apport de l'entéroclyse dans les syndromes de malabsorption de l'adulte. A propos de 73 observations [Enteroclysis in malabsorption syndrome in adults. Apropos of 73 cases].
Journal de Radiologie
We retrospectively analyzed the small bowel radiographies, performed by enteroclysis in 73 patients presenting a malabsorption disease. The etiology are: celiac disease (44 cases), abetalipoprotidemia (2 cases), Whipple's disease (7 cases), mastocytosis (1 case), amyloidosis (1 case), ischemia enteritis (4 cases), radiation injury (4 cases), lymphangiectasia (4 cases), Crohn's disease (4 cases) and NH lymphoma (2 cases). With enteroclysis, the radiological diagnosis of malabsorption disease is improved and it is able to differentiate malabsorption diseases based on radiological features: increased or decreased number of folds (celiac disease, mastocytosis, abetalipoprotidemia), nodularity of folds (Whipple's disease) and wall thickness (amyloidosis, lymphangiectasia, ischemic enteritis and radiation injury). It is no possible to differentiate NH lymphoma from Crohn's disease.
