Inflammatory disorders: autoimmune enteropathy Behçet disease Crohn's disease diaphragm disease duodenal peptic ulcer eosinophilic enteritis / gastroenteritis ileal pouch / pouchitis … In contrast with the original specimens, there was a marked change with longer villi, normal brush borders, no staining of the apical cytoplasm of the enterocytes, and only small foci of enterocyte vacuolation. Summary Microvillus inclusion disease (MVID) is an extremely rare inherited intestinal disorder (enteropathy) that is typically apparent within hours or days after birth. Gastrointestinal microvillus inclusion disease. You may be trying to access this site from a secured browser on the server. The need for alternative treatment strategies is evident. Staining with hematoxylin and eosin and periodic acid–Schiff (PAS) was performed. Abstract Loss of function mutations in the actin motor myosin Vb (Myo5b) lead to microvillus inclusion disease (MVID) and death in newborns and children. In vitro, this has been shown in organ culture of fetal intestinal epithelium exposed to cytochalasin, which disrupts microfilaments by binding to their elongation ends (7). A technique using alkaline phosphatase histochemistry on routine sections of four jejunal biopsy specimens and one necropsy sample was applied to show that alkaline phosphatase activity, normally present in the brush border, occurs in the enterocytes of patients with microvillus inclusion disease. Without adequate water and nutrients, children with this condition can become dehydrated, suffer from malnutrition, and fail … Inactivating mutations in MYO5Bcauses depolarization of enterocytes in the small intestine, which gives rise to chronic, unremitting secretory diarrhea. A duodenal mucosal biopsy was performed endoscopically at the beginning of the liberalization of her diet, and examination of the tissue showed a marked morphologic improvement over that shown in the original diagnostic specimens (Figs. In one review, 74% of affected infants died before 9 months of age (1). Lateral membrane microvilli continued to be found but less frequently than in the original set of biopsy specimens (Fig. Successful intestinal transplantation for microvillus inclusion disease. The frequency of cytoplasmic inclusions has not previously been related to the clinical outcome; however, three cases labeled intestinal microvillous dystrophy in which no inclusions were seen all had a poor prognosis (8). 3. Microvillus inclusion disease is an intestinal disorder characterized by severe, watery diarrhea and an inability of the intestines to absorb nutrients. MICROVILLOUS INCLUSION DISEASE (MICROVILLOUS ATROPHY) Frank M Ruemmele, Jacques Schmitz & Olivier Goulet Orphanet Journal Of Rare Disease 2006, 1:22 2. We welcome suggestions or questions about using the website. MVID results in secretory diarrhea, brush border (BB) defects, villus atrophy, and … 2A); disordered and patchy surface microvilli (Fig. Examination of these specimens confirmed the diagnosis of microvillous inclusion disease (3). Please enable scripts and reload this page. Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) is a congenital defect of the intestinal epithelial brush border leading to severe intractable diarrhea of infancy. In Phillips' series this was found to be consistent with the severe congenital group. Oliva MM, Perman JA, Saavedra JM, et al. Gastroenterology 1983; 84:544–55. Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition : Periodic acid–Schiff (PAS) staining of the original and recent biopsy specimens. She remains well, and after 1 year without need for PN, the central catheter has been removed. This is not the case, in that after the reintroduction of a normal diet for more than 6 months, we have not found any clinical deterioration or change in the morphology of the tissue specimens. All registration fields are required. your express consent. This agrees with our finding of virtually normal PAS staining and the absence of accumulations of secretory granules in the follow-up biopsy specimens. The villi were slightly short (villus-to-crypt ratio 2:1, Fig. Because this particular gene is recessive, both parents must carry it in order to pass the disease … 2C). Electron micrographs of original diagnostic specimens show (A) a microvillous inclusion (original magnification, ×20,000), (B) areas of virtual absence or disordered microvilli in the brush border (original magnification, ×4,500), (C) abnormal accumulation of secretory granules (original magnification, ×22,500), and (D) lateral membrane microvilli (original magnification, ×28,000). Clin Gastroenterol 1986; 15:105–20. After this, PN was gradually discontinued. Weakened adhesion and integrity of intestinal epithelial cells caused by MYO5B mutation was speculated to result in the dissection and detachment of the epithelia of the gastrointestinal tract. She was admitted at the age of 12 days to the local hospital with drowsiness, vomiting, weight loss (from the 50th to the 10th percentile) and a 1-day history of watery green diarrhea. Microvillus inclusion disease (also referred to as congenital microvillus atrophy) is, with Tuft enteropathy, the best known disease of the intestinal epithelium causing intractable diarrhea of infancy, and a leading cause of secretory diarrhea in the first weeks of life. It could be hypothesized that the less severe subjects, such as this case, may have some defect in the regulation of the gene, which could then alter with age leading to the improvement seen. MVID manifests either in the first days of life (early-onset form) or in the first two months (late-onset form) of life. Staining (with diastase) showed patchy loss of the enterocyte brush border and positive staining of the apical cytoplasm of the enterocytes, which was first noted in the upper crypts. We had expected that the features originally identified would persist largely unchanged. Hum Pathol 1994; 25:1243–8. No cure exists, and patients typically die during infancy because of treatment-related complications. This rare disease is characterized by lack of microvilli on the surface of enterocytes in the small intestine, the presence of pathognomonic intracellular microvillus inclusions, and vesicular bodies within these enterocytes. We report a child with MVID who, at the age of 5 years, is thriving on a normal unrestricted diet and in whom the most recent small bowel biopsy specimens showed pathologic abnormalities significantly less marked than those found at diagnosis. The abnormal accumulation of PAS material in the tissue specimens of our patient was initially seen in the epithelial cells of the upper crypt. In vivo, displacement of microvilli along the lateral cell border of the enterocytes, as seen in this patient and in less severe cases reported by Phillips and Schmitz (1), has also been induced in rats by using colchicine, an antimicrotubular agent (12). Surface enterocytes over large parts of the mucosa appeared entirely normal with well-preserved brush borders and no abnormalities of the enterocyte cytoplasm detected by PAS staining (Fig. Walker-Smith JA. The specimens were collected and processed, using routine methods for light and electron microscopy. The case presented here illustrates the need for caution in considering early transplantation in children with late-occurring or clinically mild MVID. Am J Clin Pathol 1992; 98:119–24. Microvillus inclusion disease (MVID) is a disorder of intestinal epithelial differentiation characterized by life-threatening intractable diarrhea. For information on cookies and how you can disable them visit our Privacy and Cookie Policy. 30 mins. Ultrastructural identification of apical microvillous inclusions in the surface enterocytes is diagnostic. Unfortunately, no colonic specimens were obtained before the episode of shock, and it is therefore unknown whether this was an improvement. Microvillus inclusion disease (MVID ) is a congenital enteropathy characterized by loss of apical microvilli and formation of cytoplasmic inclusions lined by microvilli in enterocytes. 4A) and no internalization of microvilli within cytoplasmic vacuoles. Microvillus inclusion disease is inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic trait. The PAS-stained polysaccharides, glycoproteins, and glycolipids and the abnormal accumulation in the epithelial cells are thought to be due to abnormal localization of the brush border enzymes (6) and have been related to the presence of secretory granules (7). It was also noted that lateral membrane microvilli were readily found (Fig. (B) Staining (original magnification, ×100) of the subsequently obtained specimens at 3 years. Microvillus inclusion disease (MVID) is a congenital enteropathy characterized by loss of apical microvilli and formation of cytoplasmic inclusions lined by microvilli in enterocytes. described eight infants with early-onset severe watery diarrhea associated to facial deformities and unusual tufts of woolly hair with trichorrhexis nodosa. Symptoms typically develop in the first days (early-onset) or first months (late-onset) of life. MVID is caused by mutations in the MYO5B gene, coding for the myosin Vb motor protein. 800-638-3030 (within USA), 301-223-2300 (international) Raafat F, Green NJ, Nathavitharana KA, et al. By continuing to use this website you are giving consent to cookies being used. The diagnosis of microvillus inclusion disease was established by documentation of microvillus inclusions in duodenal epithelial cells. This website is intended for pathologists and laboratory personnel but not for patients. Phillips and Schmitz (1) reviewed 23 cases, 19 of which occurred within a week of birth and were described as congenital. may email you for journal alerts and information, but is committed A trial of somatostatin therapy was ineffective in controlling the diarrhea. Electron micrographs of recent specimens. Background: Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) is a rare congenital disease producing intractable secretory diarrhea in early infancy. The first possibility is related to the genetic basis of the disease. She had no evidence of significant liver or cardiopulmonary disease. Microvillous inclusion disease is considered to be an autosomal recessive condition, although the molecular abnormality has not been identified. 3). Microvillus inclusions: intracellular vesicle-like structures that are internally (luminally) lined by microvilli, characteristic of microvillus inclusion disease. Microvillous inclusion disease is an uncommon congenital enteropathy characterized by severe, intractable diarrhea within the first weeks of life. Although diagnosis can be suspected by special stains of the mucosa (PAS, … In normal human development, there are a number of examples of changes of gene regulation with age (e.g., hemoglobin chain synthesis). A pathologic study of resected tissue in a child with MVID who underwent multivisceral transplantation showed that the histologic abnormalities extend throughout the small intestine (9). Stools, blood, swabs, and urine examination did not reveal any pathogens. Subsequently, she was weaned onto a hydrolyzed protein formula (Pregestimil; Mead-Johnson, Hounslow, Middlesex, UK), which she tolerated well, and she was discharged home 4 weeks after admission. Microvillus Inclusion Disease Microvillus inclusion disease, which also includes patients classified as microvillus dystrophy, is an inherited autosomal recessive condition causing intractable diarrhea with steatorrhea in infants. It is characterized by the neonatal onset of abundant watery diarrhea persisting despite total bowel rest. (, Abnormal microvillus structures at luminal border of enterocytes, Apical intracytoplasmic inclusions lined by microvilli. 8. Cutz E, Sherman PM, Davidson GP. Thus, this case seems to have disparate data for the clinical and pathologic phenotypes. Abnormal expression of brush-border membrane transporters in the duodenal mucosa of two patients with microvillus inclusion disease. Please try again soon. There were also no differences between the specimens obtained in endoscopic biopsies (distal duodenal) and those obtained at the same time using a Crosby capsule (jejunal). At the age of 3.3 years, after we held a discussion with her parents, because of her general good health and increasing interaction with other children at a nursery, the patient's diet was liberalized to allow her to eat freely. However, there is difficulty in the diagnosis of MVID … The apparent improvement in the appearance of the mucosal specimens was a great surprise. Because more of these children survive for longer periods (with improving management of PN) we believe that the use of early intestinal transplantation for the treatment of MVID should be reviewed. Small bowel transplantation will continue to have a role in the management of this disease, but as the outcome from transplantation continues to improve, there may be a temptation to list children with MVID for transplantation before the development of significant PN-associated liver disease. (A) Staining (original magnification, × 100) of the original diagnostic specimens in the patient aged 3 months. J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 1998; 27:536–42. Noted were subtotal villous atrophy (Fig. Affected infants often have difficulty gaining weight and growing at the expected rate (failure to thrive), developmental delay, liver and kidney problems, and thinning of the bones (osteoporosis). The authors thank Dr. Mary Loudon of the Monklands and Bellshill Hospitals National Health Service Trust for referring this case, and Dr. Alan Phillips of the Department of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Royal Free Hospital, for his helpful comments on the original biopsy specimens. For immediate assistance, contact Customer Service: DISEASE NAME AND SYNONYMS Microvillous inclusion disease Microvillous atrophy Congenital enteropathy Congenital familial protracted diarrhea with enterocyte brush-border … Unexpectedly, her weight rapidly climbed to above the 50th percentile (Fig. Her clinical presentation was thus more in keeping with the late-onset group, and the disease was clearly at the mild end of the spectrum. She subsequently thrived, stabilizing at the 25th percentile at 20 months and subsequently (Fig. In 1994, Girault et al. We suggest that in the few patients with features of late-occurring MVID, associated with the increased presence of lateral membrane microvilli on electron microscopy, PN should be the mainstay of treatment, but regular review of small intestinal morphology and function, to include enteral challenges, should be undertaken. 4B). Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) or microvillous atrophy is a congenital disorder of the intestinal epithelial cells that presents with persistent life-threatening watery diarrhea and is characterized by morphological enterocyte abnormalities. However, we cannot answer medical or research questions or give advice. Microvillus inclusion disease (microvillus) is an uncommon form of congenital protracted diarrhea usually starting in the early neonatal period. In the more common early-onset form, affected patients … Disorders of the cytoskeleton of the enterocyte. 124 POSTVIRAL GASTROPARESIS IN CHILDREN: PRESENTATION, TREATMENT AND OUTCOME. Lifelong parenteral nutrition (PN) is necessary from diagnosis, and the outlook is poor. 2B); and epithelial cells with abnormal accumulation of secretory granules (Fig. 6. Microvillus Inclusion Disease (MVID) is a severe form of neonatal diarrhea, caused mainly by mutations in MYO5B. 11. In our patient, symptoms appeared at 12 days but appeared to improve with hydrolyzed feeding until 3 months of age when she experienced diarrhea and evidence of malabsorption (coagulopathy responsive to vitamin K). revised March 20, 2000; accepted March 21, 2000. MVID can be diagnosed based on loss of microvilli, microvillus inclusions, and accumulation of subapical vesicles. The constitutive exocytotic pathway in microvillous atrophy. A diagnosis of intractable diarrhea of infancy was made, and she was transferred to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, where extensive investigations revealed no evidence of enteropathogens, disaccharidase deficiency, cystic fibrosis, pancreatic insufficiency, or immunodeficiency. Microvillus inclusion disease (MVID) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder due to defective apical surface of the enterocytes presenting with protracted diarrhea from birth. Subsequently, a multivisceral organ transplant provided a unique opportunity to establish the gastrointestinal extent of involvement of this disease. J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 1993; 17:239–46. 10. Next is the possibility that the marked abnormalities seen in the original specimens were the consequence of an acquired disease yet to be described. Because of the very poor prognosis, small bowel transplantation is recommended as a therapeutic option (2), although the best time to attempt this has yet to be clearly established. (11), in studying the exocytotic pathway for sucrase-isomaltase was unable to identify an abnormality in the constitutive pathway. She subsequently had reasonable weight gain along the 10th percentile, reportedly passing two to three seedy stools per day until 3 months of age, when she was admitted with fever, vomiting, and recurrence of green watery stools (six to eight stools per day). Further biopsies (both endoscopic and using Crosby capsule) were performed simultaneously 6 months after the patient's diet had been liberalized. Abnormal accumulations of secretory granules were not present. In those with late-onset disease, changes were first noted in the low villus epithelium. Serum ferritin, folate, vitamin B12, and red cell folate levels were all within the normal range. Incidence of Gastroesophageal Reflux with Whey- and Casein-Based Formulas in Infants and in Children with Severe Neurological Impairment, Differential Diagnosis of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome, Familial Microvillous Atrophy: A Clinicopathological Survey of 23 Cases, by European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition and North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition. Ruemmele FM, Müller T, Schiefermeier N, Ebner HL, Lechner S, Pfaller K, et al. Phillips A, Fransen J, Hauri HP, et al. Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) is a congenital, usually neonatal, autosomal recessive condition manifested by severe, prolonged secretory diarrhea. It has been suggested that MVID is a congenital abnormality of a transport mechanism in the exocytosis of brush border–related material (10). Phillips AD, Jenkins P, Raafat F, et al. Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) is a congenital defect of the intestinal epithelial brush border leading to severe intractable diarrhea of infancy. In one review, 74% of affected infants died before 9 months of age (1). Enteropathies associated with protracted diarrhoea of infancy: Clinicopathological features, cellular and molecular mechanisms. Lippincott Journals Subscribers, use your username or email along with your password to log in. Carruthers L, Phillips AD, Dourmashkin R, et al. Microvillus inclusion disease prevents the absorption of nutrients from food during digestion, resulting in malnutrition and dehydration. 1A); abnormal PAS staining of the brush border and apical cytoplasm, which was first noted in the upper crypt epithelium (Fig. Both boys and girls can be affected, although it does seem to appear in girls more often. MVID is caused by mutations in the MYO5B gene, coding for the myosin Vb motor protein. [email protected]. Pretransplant management and small bowel-liver transplantation in an infant with microvillus inclusion disease. J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 1985; 4:902–7. Phillips AD, Schmitz J. Familial microvillous atrophy: a clinicopathological survey of 23 cases. The jejunal mucosa showed partial villous atrophy and foci of enterocyte cytoplasmic vacuolation most prominent at the apices of villi. Hum Mutat 2010. 12. The late-onset group appeared to have a better prognosis; three were alive at the time of publication. Lifelong parenteral nutrition (PN) is necessary from diagnosis, and the outlook is poor. How does cancer arise based on complexity theory? Her pathologic findings at diagnosis were pathognomonic of the disease (3), and review of histology by experts in this disease confirmed the diagnosis. Her mother did not report significantly increased diarrhea, and a 3-day fat balance study revealed fat intake of 36 g/24 hr, and fecal fat output of 0.74 g/24 hr (absorption index, 98%), which confirmed that she did not have fat malabsorption. Other extensive investigations did not provide a clear diagnosis, and because of persisting diarrhea and weight loss, she needed 7 days of PN. Michail S, Collins JF, Xu H, et al. During this period she also received an oral rehydration solution (Dioralyte) and oral bicarbonate supplements with snacks very rarely given as treats. Despite this, she continued to have secretory diarrhea, possibly relating to an abnormal sodium transport system (4). Congenital microvillous atrophy: specific diagnostic features. 1B). Gastroenterology 1994; 106:771–4. Data is temporarily unavailable. 7. Microvillus inclusion disease, also known as Davidson's disease, congenital microvillus atrophy and, less specifically, microvillus atrophy (note: microvillus is often misspelled as microvillous), is a rare genetic disorder of the small intestine that is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. Microvillus inclusion disease and tuft enteropathy are the best-known diseases of the intestinal epithelium causing intractable diarrhea of infancy. The specimens showed no changes in comparison with the specimens obtained 6 months before. Also called congenital or familial microvillous atrophy Disorder of intestinal brush border that causes intractable watery diarrhea with steatorrhea in infants Patients require total parental nutrition and rarely live beyond age 2 years Villous atrophy may be due to apoptotic cell loss (Hum Pathol 2000;31:1404) One case has been reported in which there was a clinical improvement (reduction in the output of stool), which followed an episode of shock (5). 3) suggesting that she was absorbing significant energy and nutrients enterally. Duodenal biopsies (using a Crosby capsule) were then performed. Arch Dis Child 1985; 60:135–40. If MVID is an abnormality of a single gene, the most severe congenital cases could have a mutation of that particular gene that does not alter with age. Pediatr Pathol Lab Med 1997; 17:335–67. This pathology leads to the characteristic intractable, life-threatening, watery diarrhea. It was thought that if she was closely monitored and her diarrhea did not significantly increase, an oral diet was unlikely to cause her harm. 1B and 4). Pavelka M, Gangl A. 4. Therefore, the suggestion that food may be a factor in the development of the microscopic abnormalities (13) is questionable, and we are encouraged to attempt repeated enteral challenges in other children with this condition. Although myosin Vb is implicated in the organization of intracellular transport and cell surface … 800-638-3030 (within USA), 301-223-2300 (international). to maintaining your privacy and will not share your personal information without Other than central venous catheter infections and catheter changes, she remained in good health, although diarrhea continued unchanged at seven to eight loose stools per day. Follow Dr. Pernick's blog by clicking, 30100 Telegraph Road, Suite 408, Bingham Farms, Michigan 48025 (USA). Intestinal biopsies reveal extensive microvilli abnormalities, typical inclusions and vesicles mainly of the apical-luminal enterocytes and colonocytes. The final way that the improvement may have occurred is as a consequence of the dietary exclusion that the child underwent after total PN was initiated when she was 5 months of age. Paracellular transport: the transfer of substances across an epithelium by passing through the intercellular space between the cells, controlled by junction complexes. Although myosin Vb is implicated in the organization of intracellular transport and cell surface … Intestinal microvillous dystrophy: a variant of microvillous inclusion disease or a new entity? Inherited MYO5B mutations have recently been associated with microvillus inclusion disease (MVID), an autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by intractable, life-threatening, watery diarrhea appearing shortly after birth. For more information, please refer to our Privacy Policy. However Phillips et al. 9. (A) A marked improvement in the morphology of the enterocyte microvilli (original magnification, ×3,000) was found and (B) displacement of microvilli along the lateral cell borders of the enterocytes (original magnification, ×32,000) continued to be found, but in lower numbers.
