The Yield of Colonic Biopsy in the Evaluation of Chronic Unexplained Diarrhea
Diarrhea is a common symptom of patients with infectious, inflammatory and systemic diseases presenting with gastrointestinal manifestations.
Colonoscopy with biopsy is widely used for the evaluation of diarrhea (often defined as “persistent diarrhea of indeterminate origin”).
Biopsy protocols vary amongst practices and possibly even within the same practice, but no study has addressed the diagnostic yield of different biopsy combinations.
