An epidemic of fibrosing colonopathy, a new disease caused by the prolonged administration of excessive doses of pancreatic enzymes, was first reported in 1994. More than 60 cases were known to occur worldwide before dosage guidelines were enforced. Predisposing factors were young age, previous intestinal surgery, meconium ileus equivalent, and use of H2 blockers, corticosteroids, and DNase. Abnormal features included foreshortened colon, strictures, marked submucosal fibrosis, ascites, and… Expand

TLDR
Treating pancreatic insufficiency is mainly supportive and the role of ursodeoxycholic acid in the prevention of cirrhosis needs to be better defined. Expand
Colitis in Infancy and Childhood
TLDR
The evaluation of specimens in these settings is essential to confirm the presence of an inflammatory disorder, to establish a diagnosis, to distinguish acute, self-limited disease from chronic processes, to determine the extent of disease and to assess the efficacy of therapy. Expand
Colitis in Childhood
TLDR
The evaluation of specimens in these settings is essential to confirm the presence of an inflammatory disorder, to establish a diagnosis, to distinguish acute, selflimited disease from chronic processes, to determine the extent of disease, and to assess the efficacy of therapy. Expand
Inflammatory bowel disease–like conditions: medication-induced enteropathy
TLDR
Endoscopy with biopsy along with clinical history is critical for the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of IBD, medication-associated GI injury, and superimposed drug-induced injury in IBD. Expand
Successful Non-Invasive treatment of stricturing fibrosing colonopathy in an adult patient
TLDR
A novel therapeutic approach for advanced stricturing FC is presented in an adult patient which successfully avoided surgery (right hemicolectomy) over a three year follow up. Expand
Evidence for a Cystic Fibrosis Enteropathy
TLDR
Enterocyte damage and intestinal inflammation in CF patients are demonstrated and evidence for an inverse correlation between enteropathy and lung function is provided, and the presented associations of enteropathy with important CF-related morbidities further emphasize the clinical relevance. Expand
Pancrelipase: an evidence-based review of its use for treating pancreatic exocrine insufficiency
Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI) is often observed in patients with pancreatic diseases, including chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, and tumors, or after surgical resection. PEI oftenExpand
CREON (Pancrelipase Delayed-Release Capsules) for the treatment of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency
TLDR
Clinical study data and wealth of clinical experience suggest that CREON is effective and safe in patients with EPI regardless of etiology, with a very favorable risk-benefit profile. Expand
The multifaceted role of radiology in small bowel obstruction.
TLDR
The meaning of frequently used but poorly defined terms in describing intestinal obstruction is clarified and illustrated and the use of imaging technology in the diagnosis and management of patients with small bowel obstruction is examined. Expand
The M ultifaceted R ole o f R adiology in S mall B owel O bstruction
TLDR
The various imaging techniques to assess small bowel obstruction, the features of complicated SBO, diagnostic clues to ascertain the etiology of S BO, and the role of the radiologist in the investigation and management of SBO are discussed. Expand

Cystic fibrosis and colonic strictures. A new "iatrogenic" disease.
TLDR
Excessive dosage of pancreatic enzymes in cystic fibrosis patients can be associated with irreversible colonic stricture, a lesion distinct from Crohn's disease. Expand
Fibrosing colonopathy in children with cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
High-dose lipase replacement has been implicated as the etiology for FC and was present in all of the patients and is recommended to be used to evaluate at-risk patients who have chronic abdominal complaints or who present with recurrent bowel obstruction. Expand
Strictures of ascending colon in cystic fibrosis and high-strength pancreatic enzymes
TLDR
Five children with cystic fibrosis, who presented over 2 months, with meconium ileus equivalent that failed to respond to medical management, had histopathological changes of post-ischaemic ulceration repair, with mucosal and submucosal fibrosis. Expand
Cystic fibrosis-associated colitis and fibrosing colonopathy.
TLDR
Fibrosing colonopathy represents a newly recognized gastrointestinal complication of cystic fibrosis and a medical protocol is developed that may avoid surgical resection of the colon in some of these patients. Expand
Comparative and experimental pathology of fibrosing colonopathy.
TLDR
Comparison of the anatomical pathology of fibrosing colonopathy with that of previously encountered forms of obstructive gastrointestinal pathology, such as stricturing lesions due to potassium chloride preparations and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, confirmed it to be a previously unencountered, long-segment lesion of the colon. Expand
Colonic toxicity from pancreatins: a contemporary safety issue
TLDR
Investigation showed that the wall of the ascending and transverse colon was thickened and the lumen narrowed, although the external diameter remained normal, and the pathology of the lesions was unlike that of other chronic obstructive syndromes. Expand
Colonic strictures in children with cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
Colonic stricture in children with cystic fibrosis is due to irreversible and frequently progressive narrowing of the colonic lumen. Expand
Neuropathy and vasculopathy in colonic strictures from children with cystic fibrosis.
TLDR
Colonic strictures in patients with cystic fibrosis who received high-dose pancreatic enzyme supplements contain ganglion cell abnormalities, and mucosal cholinergic and adrenergic activity may be increased in these strictures. Expand
Colonic strictures in patients with cystic fibrosis: results of a survey of 114 cystic fibrosis care centers in the United States.
We describe 15 cases of stricture of the colon requiring surgery in cystic fibrosis patients identified from a survey of 114 cystic fibrosis care centers in the United States. Patient ages rangedExpand
The pathology of fibrosing colonopathy of cystic fibrosis: a study of 12 cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
Prolonged colonic mucosal contact with either the enzymes and/or the enteric coating itself may lead to mucosal colonic ulceration and inflammation, and topical allergy may then promote the stenosing fibroplasia. Expand
