'Collagenous colitis' with watery diarrhoea--a new entity?

Pathol Eur. 1976;11(1):87-9.


A case of chronic watery diarrhoea showed in rectal biopsy a thick subepithelial collagenous deposit in the colorectal mucosa. This deposit was of the same type as that described in the jejunal mucosa in collagenous sprue, and seems to have been the cause of the diarrhoea.
