Overview

Sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy may help in the diagnosis of conditions such as melanosis coli due to laxative abuse, amebiasis, polyps, ulceration, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis. Upper GI endoscopy and biopsy help in the diagnosis of Crohn's disease, giardiasis, intestinal lymphoma, lymphangiectasia, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, Whipple's disease, mastocytosis, abetalipoproteinemia, fungal and protozoal infections.

Other Diagnostic Studies

Endoscopic examination and mucosal biopsies help in the diagnosis of some causes of acute diarrhea such as melanosis coli due to laxative abuse, inflammatory bowel disease ( Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), Whipple's disease and parasitic infections.
