Low Prevalence of Colon Polyps in Patients with Diarrhea and Microscopic Colitis

Microscopic colitis (MC) is a condition that includes a spectrum of histological abnormalities of the colonic mucosa, ranging from an increase in the number of intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) (‘‘lymphocytic colitis’’, or LC) to a diffuse lymphoplasmocytic infiltrate of the lamina propria, prominent intraepithelial lymphocytosis, and the formation of a thick subepithelial collagen band (‘‘collagenous colitis,’’ or CC).
