OBJECTIVES We have reported colitis with ileal lymphoid nodular hyperplasia (LNH) in children with regressive autism. The aims of this study were to characterize this lesion and determine whether LNH is specific for autism. METHODS Ileo-colonoscopy was performed in 21 consecutively evaluated children with autistic spectrum disorders and bowel symptoms. Blinded comparison was made with 8 children with histologically normal ileum and colon, 10 developmentally normal children with ileal LNH, 15… Expand
Intestinal Lymphocyte Populations in Children with Regressive Autism: Evidence for Extensive Mucosal Immunopathology
TLDR
The data provide further evidence of a pan-enteric mucosal immunopathology in children with regressive autism that is apparently distinct from other inflammatory bowel diseases. Expand
Small intestinal enteropathy with epithelial IgG and complement deposition in children with regressive autism
TLDR
A novel form of enteropathy in autistic children is demonstrated, in which increases in mucosal lymphocyte density and crypt cell proliferation occur with epithelial IgG deposition, suggestive of an autoimmune lesion. Expand
Spontaneous Mucosal Lymphocyte Cytokine Profiles in Children with Autism and Gastrointestinal Symptoms: Mucosal Immune Activation and Reduced Counter Regulatory Interleukin-10
TLDR
There is a consistent profile of CD3+ lymphocyte cytokines in the small and large intestinal mucosa of these ASD children, involving increased pro-inflammatory and decreased regulatory activities. Expand
The significance of ileo-colonic lymphoid nodular hyperplasia in children with autistic spectrum disorder
TLDR
Ileo-colonic LNH is a characteristic pathological finding in children with ASD and gastrointestinal symptoms, and is associated with mucosal inflammation. Expand
Immune activation of peripheral blood and mucosal CD3+ lymphocyte cytokine profiles in children with autism and gastrointestinal symptoms
TLDR
There is a unique pattern of peripheral blood and mucosal CD3+ lymphocytes intracellular cytokines, which is consistent with significant immune dysregulation, in this ASD cohort. Expand
Focal-Enhanced Gastritis in Regressive Autism with Features Distinct from Crohn's and Helicobacter Pylori Gastritis
TLDR
A focal CD8-dominated gastritis in autistic children, with novel features, is demonstrated, distinct from the recently recognized focal gastritis of Crohn's disease, which is not CD 8-dominated. Expand
Intraepithelial Lymphocyte Eotaxin-2 Expression and Perineural Mast Cell Degranulation Differentiate Allergic/Eosinophilic Colitis From Classic IBD
TLDR
Eotaxin-2+ IELs may contribute to the periepithelial eosinophil accumulation characteristic of allergic colitis, and the colocalisation of IgE and tryptase with mucosal enteric nerves is likely to promote the dysmotility and visceral hyperalgesia classically seen in allergic gastrointestinal inflammation.

Intestinal cytokines in children with pervasive developmental disorders

clinical presentation and Histologic Findings at Ileocolonoscopy in children with Autistic spectrum Disorder and chronic Gastrointestinal symptoms
TLDR
Patients with autism or related disorders exhibiting chronic gastrointestinal symptoms demonstrate ileal or colonic inflam - mation upon light microscopic examination of biopsy tissue, and a significant association between ileo and/or colonic inflammation or LNH, and onset of developmental disorder is found.

Enterocolitis in children with developmental disorders
TLDR
A new variant of inflammatory bowel disease is present in this group of children with developmental disorders, and scores of frequency and severity of inflammation were significantly greater in both affected children and those with UC, compared with controls. Expand
RETRACTED: Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children
BACKGROUND We investigated a consecutive series of children with chronic enterocolitis and regressive developmental disorder. METHODS 12 children (mean age 6 years [range 3-10], 11 boys) wereExpand
Gastrointestinal abnormalities in children with autistic disorder.
TLDR
The observed increase in pancreatico-biliary secretion after secretin infusion suggests an upregulation of secretin receptors in the pancreas and liver and may contribute to the behavioral problems of the non-verbal autistic patients. Expand
Non-infective colitis in infancy: evidence in favour of minor immunodeficiency in its pathogenesis
TLDR
Infants with proved non-infective colitis as a group show a high prevalence of IgA, IgG2, and IgG4 deficiency, and it is likely that this minor deficiency of mucosa associated immunoglobulin production has a role in the pathogenesis of the colitic process. Expand
DR-positive T cells in autism: association with decreased plasma levels of the complement C4B protein.
TLDR
In the current investigation, the DR+ T cells were not found to be associated with age of the autistic patients but were inversely correlated with a decreased plasma level of the C4B protein. Expand
Abnormal intestinal permeability in children with autism
TLDR
It is speculated that an altered intestinal permeability could represent a possible mechanism for the increased passage through the gut mucosa of peptides derived from foods with subsequent behavioural abnormalities. Expand
Crohn's disease and abdominal tuberculosis
TLDR
Some patients may present acutely with intestinal obstruction or occasionally with peritonitis because of cecal perforation, and a proportion of patients present with colicky pain typical of small-intestinal obstruction. Expand
Increased HLA-DR and decreased CD3 on human intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes: evidence of activation?
TLDR
HLA-DR expression on IELs together with decreased CD3 expression suggest previous stimulation, however, the absence of additional markers of T cell activation may reflect a unique pathway of activation. Expand
Chromium 51-ethylenediaminetetraacetate test: a useful test in the assessment of inflammatory bowel disease.
TLDR
The 51Cr-EDTA excretion test is a safe, inexpensive test useful in evaluating patients with inflammatory bowel disease and when given by enema it provides additional objective assessment of idiopathic ulcerative colitis or proctitis. Expand
Disruption of sulphated glycosaminoglycans in intestinal inflammation
TLDR
It is suggested that inflammatory disruption of vascular and connective tissue GAGs may be an important pathogenetic mechanism, contributing to the leakage of protein and fluid, thrombosis, and tissue remodelling seen in inflammatory bowel disease. Expand
