It is well known that the malabsorption syndrome may result from a variety of causes, and in recent years the recognition of such entities as intestinal lipodystrophy, regional enteritis and lymphoma has served to refine the diagnostic criteria for sprue. It may be hoped that further investigation of tissue pathology will lead to a clearer differentiation between the various causes of malabsorption and will contribute to the understanding of absorptive mechanisms.
New interest in small bowel pathology was
