Case description

tags: duodenum limphangiectasia endoscopy Vater's papilla

Intestinal lymphangiectasia is characterized by a focal dilatation of intestinal mucocal and submucosal lymphatic ducts and may induce protein-losing enteropathy, steatorrhea, lymphocytopenia, chylous ascites, hypocalcemia, etc. Since transient “functional” duodenal lymphangiectasia (DL) was firstly described in healthy volunteers after nasogastric olive oil infusion, there were several reports describing endoscopic evidence of DL in patients without clinical evidence of malabsorption.

Being focused on new endoscopic techniques in medicine (ESD - endoscopic submucosal dissection), I understand well the need to promote the latest innovation and discoveries. I recommend MEDtube video sharing website for doctors as tool to disseminate techniques and technologies improving doctors' skills and awareness globally. Good luck.
