Nongranulomatous ulcerative jejunoileitis

Am J Gastroenterol. 1984 Jun;79(6):446-9.

Abstract

Nongranulomatous ulcerative jejunoileitis is a rare cause of small intestinal ulceration. Clinical features include fever, pain, steatorrhea, and protein-losing enteropathy with an unremitting downhill course. Some cases have shown similarities to gluten-sensitive enteropathy. However, the small bowel barium study of these two diseases shows markedly divergent patterns.
