Título Bird-fancier's lung and jejunal villous atrophy.
Información bibliográfica 22 Nov. 1975, Vol.2, No.7943, p.1006-1008. 9 ref.
Resumen 16 patients with bird-fancier's lung were screened for evidence of coeliac disease (clinical features, erythrocyte or serum folate levels, serum tests for reticulin antibodies). 5 of the 9 patients selected for jejunal biopsy showed villous atrophy, which appeared to be a true gluten-sensitive enteropathy in some. The 5 case histories are given. The findings represent a strong case for routine jejunal biopsy in patients with bird-fancier's lung, since villous atrophy may be observed in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms and when screening tests are negative. 4 possible explanations for the association between villous atrophy and bird-fancier's lung are proposed.
