Abstract

A study was made of the case histories of 30 patients (out of 100 autopsies) who had enteritis, enterocolitis, or colitis lymphofollicularis, diagnosed at the time of autopsy. The gross and microscopic appearance of the lesions, clinical presentations of the patients, and protein electrophoretic and immunoglobulin patterns from postmortem samples of blood are described. In all patients, immunoglobulin levels were normal or increased. This is in contrast to the previously described polypoid lymphoid hyperplasia of the gastrointestinal tract associated with hypogammaglobulinemia, particularly decreased IgA.
