Diagnostic Pediatric Colonoscopy for Lymphoid Hyperplasia of Terminal Ileum


Lymphoid hyperplasia of the intestinal tract is a non-specific reactive change. Most of these inatances, it is associated with a benign clinical course and requires no treatment. In my 14 casea anaiysis of colonoscopic obaervation, sex distribution was 9 males and 5 females. Most frequent age of incidence was 7 cases at the age of 8 to 14. Barium Eaema acurracy for the detection of lymphoid hyplasia was 57%. The colonoscopic findinge of lymphoid hyperplasia showed mucosal hyperemia, dome shaped, like a worm appearance of nodular lymphoid hypertrophy and segmental or focal aggregation of lymphoid nodules. I perfarmed only biopsy with hot biopsy foreeps and confirmed lymphoid hyperplasia, histologically. Occasionally treatment was nat necessary, but sometimes surgery may be required in the case of severe cornplications, intussusception, bleeding and obstruction.
