The role of endoscopy in the management of patients with diarrhea

Nov 14, 2016, 20:27 PM
Diarrheal illnesses can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality, especially in high-risk populations such as the very young, the elderly, and those with comorbid medical illnesses. Diarrhea is defined in adults by abnormal stool weight (O200 g/day), consistency (loose or liquid), and/or frequency (O3 times/day).2,3 A 4-week symptom duration is generally considered as a cutoff point to distinguish acute (%4 weeks) from chronic (O4 weeks) diarrhea.2,3 Because the causes of acute and chronic diarrhea are often different, the need, threshold, and timing of endoscopic evaluation for acute versus chronic diarrhea are different. This document describes the role of endoscopy in the management of patients with diarrhea, with separate discussions for immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients, and is an update of a previous ASGE guideline.4 There are few indications for endoscopy in the management of acute diarrhea, and, although these are briefly discussed, the document primarily focuses on the evaluation on chronic diarrhea.
