Figures and Tables from this paper

Enterocolitis in children with developmental disorders

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.

The significance of ileo-colonic lymphoid nodular hyperplasia in children with autistic spectrum disorder

Ileo-colonic LNH is a characteristic pathological finding in children with ASD and gastrointestinal symptoms, and is associated with mucosal inflammation.

Enterocolitis, autism and measles virus

Intestinal permeability, measured by urinary excretion of inert sugars after oral dosing—a non-invasive marker of epithelial integrity—is elevated in some children with autism, even in the absence of symptoms.

The Clinical Presentation and Outcome of Infants with Nodular Lymphoid Hyperplasia: Experience with 34 Cases from Southern Iran

Evaluated the clinical presentation and outcome of infants with fresh rectal bleeding and final diagnosis of Nodular lymphoid hyperplasia, a relatively uncommon, but potentially important problem in early infancy.

Nodular lymphoid hyperplasia: A marker of low-grade inflammation in irritable bowel syndrome?

About 1/3 of patients with IBS-type symptoms or suspected IBD presented diffuse colonic NLH, which could be a marker of low-grade inflammation in a conspicuous subset of IBS patients.

Colonic CD8 and gamma delta T-cell infiltration with epithelial damage in children with autism.

Immunohistochemistry confirms a distinct lymphocytic colitis in autistic spectrum disorders in which the epithelium appears particularly affected, consistent with increasing evidence for gut epithelial dysfunction in autism.

Lymphoid hyperplasia of the colon and its association with underlying allergic airway diseases

The results indicate that lymphoid hyperplasia in the large intestine may be associated with allergic airway diseases rather than with food allergies; thus, its presence may be useful to detect patients with underlying airway hyperreactivity.

Intestinal cytokines in children with pervasive developmental disorders

OBJECTIVE:A relationship between autism and gastrointestinal (GI) immune dysregulation has been postulated based on incidence of GI complaints as well as macroscopically observed lymphonodular

Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and bowel problems or developmental regression in children with autism: population study

Findings provide no support for an MMR associated “new variant” form of autism with developmental regression and bowel problems, and further evidence against involvement of MMR vaccine in the initiation of autism.



Pathogenesis of aphthoid ulcers in Crohn's disease: correlative findings by magnifying colonoscopy, electron microscopy, and immunohistochemistry.

The red halo appearance surrounding lymphoid follicles seems to precede visible aphthoid ulcers and suggests that ulcerations in Crohn's disease originate from FAE, possibly related to its physiological role as a portal of entry for potentially pathogenic agents.

Food allergy and infantile autism.

The results lead us to hypothesise a relationship between food allergy and infantile autism as has already been suggested for other disturbances of the central nervous system.

Abnormal intestinal permeability in children with autism

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.

Dialysable lymphocyte extract (DLyE) in infantile onset autism: A pilot study

After cessation of TF therapy, 5 in the autistic group and 3 of the pseudo-autistic group regressed, but they did not drop as low as baseline levels.

Mental retardation, megaloblastic anaemia, methylmalonic aciduria and abnormal homocysteine metabolism due to an error in vitamin B12 metabolism.

A child with retarded physical and mental development, recurrent megaloblastic anaemia, methylmalonic aciduria and abnormal homocysteine metabolism resulting from an inborn error in the metabolism of cobalamins died at the age of 7 years.

Autistic spectrum disorders

Autism seems to be on the increase. This at least is the feeling of many professionals in the field of child development in Britain, who believe that in recent years they have been seeing more
