Please sign in to rate material
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.
