digestive neuronal dysplasia type B

Sunday 28 January 2007

Intestinal neuronal dysplasia type B has constituted a diagnostic challenge ever since its first description more than 30 years ago.

Intestinal neuronal dysplasia type B is regarded by many as a subtle malformation of the enteric nervous system that is limited to the submucosal plexus of the colon. The precise etiology remains unknown, and, to date, no specific diagnostic test exists other than morphology.
