Higher Prevalence of Celiac Disease in the Microscopic Colitis Population: Results From a Large Pathology Database
Microscopic colitis (MC) refers to two medical conditions which cause chronic diarrhea: collagenous colitis (CC) and lymphocytic colitis (LC).
Previous studies have reported an increased prevalence of microscopic colitis in the celiac disease population. However, these studies were limited by small numbers or specialty referral populations.
Further characterization of the patients who harbor both MC and celiac disease is needed.
