Disease Immunoproliferative Small Intestinal Disease

Name Immunoproliferative Small Intestinal Disease
Synonyms alpha Chain Disease | alpha-Chain Disease | alpha-Chain Diseases | Disease, alpha-Chain | Diseases, alpha-Chain | Heavy Chain Disease, IgA Type | IPSID | Lymphoma, Mediterranean | Mediterranean Lymphoma
Definition A condition that is caused by HYPERPLASIA of LYMPHOCYTES in the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL) and the mesenteric LYMPH NODES. These lymphocytes produce an anomalous alpha heavy chain protein. Generally, these IPSID patients have either concurrent LYMPHOMA or develop lymphoma within a few years. The disease was first described in the Mediterranean region and is characterized by malabsorption; WEIGHT LOSS; DIARRHEA; and STEATORRHEA.
