Colonic mucosa

Common Questions and Answers about Colonic mucosa

colon

I had a recent upper endoscopy and am confused about the pathology results. Shouldn't "colonic mucosa" and "crypt architecture" be in the colon and not in my esophageal biopsy? "Microscopic Examination: Sections show colonic mucosa with normal crypt architecture and lamina propria mononuclear cell population.

I am very confused. I had my first colonoscopy on friday and have no idea what the results mean. Does anyone know what "STRIPS OF COLONIC MUCOSA AND EDEMA AND CONGESTION OF TEH LAMINA PROPRIA" mean?
Sections from the distal esophagus show portions of squamous and glandular mucosa. The glandular mucosa shows features of gastric mucosa. The squamous mucosa shows reactive features including basal layer hyperplasia and elongation of the submucosa papillae. Patchy chronic inflammation is seen. The features are those of reflux esophagitis. There is intestinal metaplasia C: Sections from the second portion of duodenum show portions of duodenal mucosa with a normal villous architecture.
Sections show polypoid colonic mucosa showing crypts and glands separated by moderately inflamed lamina propria. No dysplasia is noted on these sections Impression" Consistent with early hyperplastic polyp. What do I understand from this.

All sections of the colon looked normal except for the ascending colon (benign colonic mucosa with lymphoid follicle), the sigmoid (benign colonic mucoasa with lymphoid aggregate), and rectum (benign colonic mucosa with a focus of coagulative necrosis). What do all these mean. Just the word bening scares me as you think of cancer when you hear bening. And what about the necrosis in my rectum?
When bile acids are not absorbed in the small intestine (because of intestinal inflammation or other intestinal disease), they reach the large intestine, where they induce secretion of water/mucus from the mucosa. By another mechanism, when bile acids can't be delivered into intestine, due to blockage in biliary tree (e.g. from gallstone), or liver disease, then they enter the blood, via which they travel to large intestine and cause water/mucus secretion.
9 cm diameter ascending and descending colonic biopsy fragments of colonic mucosa showing adenomatous change, low grade WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT RECOMMENDATION??
Actule inflammation, villous atrophy, granulomas, and dysplasia. Portions of colonic mucosa with focal acute cryptitis, crypt abscess, infiltration of chronic inflammatory cells and eosinophils. Scatter neutrophils in lamina propria.
This is because there is less colonic mucosa to reabsorb water in the stool, plus the intestinal transit time is shortened. What you can do is try taking in bulk forming foods (fruits and vegetables). But be very careful though because there is still a danger of bowel obstruction. Also, you should regularly follow-up with your doctors and tell them that you are experiencing frequent loose stools. A referral to a dietitian may be needed to improve your nutritional status. Good luck.

Fragments of mildly hyperplastic colonic mucosa. My question is does this old granuloma indicate crohns disease? and does the hyperplastic mucosa indicate a threat for future cancer? and could I actually have negative biopsies and have crohns as it skips areas, leaving spots of healthy tissue between inflammed areas? Thank you so much for comments.
Terminal ileum - ileocolonic mucosa with no significant pathologic alteration Random colon, biopsy - Colonic muscosa with nonspecific focal active colitis - negative for granulomata, dysplasia, or features of chronicity Duodenum - duodenal mucosa with no significant pathologic alteration Thanks!
Colon inflammation would not be seen from outside. It's inflammation of colonic mucosa, which has nothing with the outside skin. It may be thrombotic vein in internal hemmorhoids. I would go to the doc. right away.
Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone else out there has had a colonoscopy for chronic loose stools, and gotten this on their report - "colonic mucosa showing mild chronic non-specific inflammation" ? My doctor who did the test said everything is fine, looks normal. Another doctor I went to, said its alarming and I need to have another colonoscopy done right away. I really don't know what to do.
He said the test result is normal. The diagnosis is colonic mucosa woth submucosal lymphoid aggregates. What does that mean?
In the colon, bile acids stimulate water secretion by the colonic mucosa causing diarrhea. Cholestyramine absorbs the bile acids , thereby preventing the stimulation of colonic secretion. This information is presented for educational purposes only. Always consult your personal physician for specific medical questions. HFHSM.D.-rf *keywords: gall bladder surgery, diarrhea 0.
The tissue consists of polypoid sections of colonic mucosa having a tubular and adenomatous configuration of the glands. There are areas of mild to severe epithelial dysplastic alterations No malignancy was identified. My question is, does it seem like something to worry about in the future? Will this come back again? Was this really something that would have turned to cancer if i would have waited longer? Is this pretty common in people my age?
, is the condition of having diverticula in the colon which are outpocketings of the colonic mucosa and submucosa through weaknesses of muscle layers in the colon wall. These are more common in the sigmoid colon, which is a common place for increased pressure.About 10% of the US population over the age of 40 and half over the age of 60 has diverticulosis.Often this disorder has no symptoms.Howevr, Infection of a diverticulum can result in diverticulitis.
The only reliable diagnosis is colonoscopy with biopsy of colonic mucosa. Stool tests are useless, since candida is normal fungus in the bowel, and normal and overgrown amount of candida can't be distinguished. Treatment is with antifungal drugs. It is gastrointestinal specialist who deals with this.
I just wish this was available for Crohn's, but it isn't, as Crohn's also affects the small intestine, whereas UC only affects the inner lining of the colonic mucosa - Crohn's goes right through the 3 layers of the intestinal mucosa and cause serious complications, as I have. If your sister has a good gastroenterologist, with experience of inflammatory bowel diseases, she could have a normal life.
I'm 37 yrs old and "bowel issues" started at age 11. Bloody diarrhea & weight loss mostly. Some bouts severe enough that I was hospitalized. At age 11 we were told it was colitis likely from my parents' diverse 2 yrs prior (?!) At age 14 we were told it was due to food allergies. At 19 they said it was food poisoning. At 23 I was told it was bleeding hemorhoids from the pregnancy. In 1997, at age 28 I had a severe G.I. hemorrhage landing me in the hospital for 5 days.
Pylori,chronic gastritis, moderate with intestinal metaplasia, small intestinal mucosa with mild non-specific chronic inflammation(colon)Lg. intestinal mucosa showing congestion, colonic showing congestion. Also the small intestinal mucosa(ileum)showing congestion and prominent lymphoid follicles. My doctor says see you in 10yrs.(Had many other tests prior to above tests which include ultrasound, upper gi series both were ok).
So far they can't seem to find anything wrong. The description from the biopsy states unremarkable colonic mucosa but for one or two tiny foci of eosinophils within the lamina propria, of unclear significance. Can someone please put this into plan english for me?
Localized mildly erythematous mucosa without active bleeding and with no stigmata of bleeding was found in the duodenal bulb. The terminal ileum contained a few 6mm ulcers. No bleeding was present. There was evidence of patent end-to-side ileo-colonic anastomosis in the ascending colon. This was characterized by erosion. A 6mm Sessile polyp was found in the ascending colon.
shoes colonic mucosa with preserved pattern and goblet cells. There is chronic inflammation in the lamina propria but no granuloma. No cryptitis or crypt abscess. There is thickened muscularias mucosa. No specific changes of solitary rectal ulcer.
Actually, the only reliable test for candida would be colonoscopy, which shows white patches in colonic mucosa. Doctors are reluctant to order colonoscopy for candida without obvious symptoms, like oral thrush. Anyway, you can make a diet trial, where you avoid all simple sugars (table sugar, fructose - so no fruits, and fruit juices, pasta, potatoes and so on. More here: http://www.allhealthsite.
