[The clinical manifestations and duodenal mucosa in the patients with chronic pancreatitis and bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

The current study was designed to test the role of bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine in the pathogenesis of chronic pancreatitis. It was established that the bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine is noted in the majority of patients with chronic pancreatitis. We found an association between clinical manifestations of chronic pancreatitis, active duodenitis, duodenal lymphangiectasia and papillitis and bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.
