  • Objectives We report four new cases of natural killer-cell enteropathy (NKCE) and similar lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs), as well as review the literature concerning indolent natural killer (NK)-cell LPDs of the gastrointestinal tract. Methods Pathologic and clinical data were obtained from institutional/referral records. Results Patient 1 (45-year-old man) had anemia; a small intestinal lesion was endoscopically biopsied. Patient 2 (65-year-old woman) had biliary colic, treated with… CONTINUE READING
