In keeping with the stated goal of providing the surgical pathologist with tools to recognize abnormalities of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract due to drugs (AGIDS), in part II of this review we embark in a more organ-based description of AGIDS. Adequate space is given to the numerous adverse gastrointestinal effects of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Pill esophagitis, esophagitis dissecans, proton pump inhibitors’ effects, diaphragm disease, and the recently described effects of drugs… Expand
Drug-induced gastrointestinal injury (DIGI). Updates, reflections and key points.
TLDR
Several DIGIs due to recently developed immunomodulators used in oncology have shown relevance given their sometimes fatal outcome and the accumulating evidence of a common morphological appearance among them. Expand
Iatrogenic pathology of the intestines
TLDR
This review concentrates on selected examples of medication‐induced injury of the intestinal tract in which the pathology can be recognized, particularly on biopsies, with a focus on newly described medication-induced gastrointestinal effects. Expand
The Ever-Changing Landscape of Drug-Induced Injury of the Lower Gastrointestinal Tract.

TLDR
The most common drug-induced injury patterns affecting the colon, which may be recognized by the surgical pathologist on colonic mucosal biopsies are reviewed to review. Expand
Apoptotic enteropathy caused by antimetabolites and TNF-α antagonists
TLDR
In all cases, a temporal association between drug intake and/or dose increase, and onset of diarrhoea, was observed, and no convincing evidence of other potentially underlying causes of colitis/enteritis was found, including infections. Expand
Histopathology of Non-IBD Colitis. A practical approach from the Italian Group for the study of the gastrointestinal tract (GIPAD)
Summary Non-IBD colitides (NIBDC) are intestinal diseases clinically and endoscopically overlapping with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD), sometimes with a similar histological picture. NIBDCExpand
Diagnosing Celiac Disease: Role of the Pathologists
TLDR
In a patient with suspected CD, pathologist should describe essential histopathological findings and offer differential diagnosis when appropriate and recommendation to perform biopsies from the proximal part of the duodenum in addition to the distal duodenal biopsy. Expand
Recently highlighted non-neoplastic pathologic entities of the upper GI tract and their clinical significance.
TLDR
The objective of this review is to increase familiarity with non-neoplastic entities involving the esophagus and the stomach among gastroenterologists and pathologists alike with the goal of promoting detection and increased reporting of cases and ultimately improving the authors' understanding of these entities.

Vascular Injury Characterizes Doxycycline-induced Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Mucosal Injury
TLDR
Clinical, endoscopic, and pathologic features of doxycycline-induced upper GI tract injury are reviewed, with an emphasis on vascular injury. Expand
Acute dysphagia presentation and its association with esophagitis dissecans and concomitant diseases. A diagnostic challenge.
TLDR
The clinical, endoscopic and histological damage of the mucosal in subjects with dysphagia, its relation to concomitant entities and the treatment response are characterized. Expand
Pill-induced esophagitis caused by ingesting excessive caffeine tablets
TLDR
This case highlights the risk of esophageal injuries after ingesting excessive caffeine tablets, which were sold as dietary supplement without a prescription, and indicates that endoscopic surveillance is advisable to prevent severe complications if a patient presents with esphageal symptoms suggestive of chemical esophagitis.

Histologic Features of Mycophenolate Mofetil-Related Colitis: A Graft-Versus-Host Disease-Like Pattern
TLDR
Colonic biopsies from patients with MMF-related diarrhea showed prominent crypt cell apoptosis and reactive/reparative changes including enterocyte cytologic atypia, increased neuroendocrine cells, and glandular architectural distortion, similar to the ones seen in patients with acute intestinal GVHD.

Gastric Mucosal Calcinosis: Clinicopathologic Considerations
TLDR
GMC has rarely been associated with epigastric pain and/or dyspepsia, and some examples of systemic calcification are reversible with normalization of biochemical parameters, which highlights the need for pathologists to report this finding when encountered in a premortem gastric biopsy. Expand
Gastroduodenitis associated with yttrium 90-microsphere selective internal radiation: an iatrogenic complication in need of recognition.
TLDR
The spectrum of the alterations is consistent with radiotherapy-induced changes, and it is anticipated that more patients will be treated with SIRT, and pathologists should become aware of the adverse effects associated with its use. Expand
