Cryptogenic Multifocal Ulcerative Sclerosing Enteritis: A Curious Case of Intestinal Obstruction in the Setting of Human Immunodeficiency Virus.
ACG Case Rep J 2019; 6(5):e00070AC

Abstract

Cryptogenic multifocal ulcerative sclerosing enteritis (CMUSE) is a rare clinical entity characterized by chronic, relapsing episodes of ileus and obstruction resulting from superficial ulcerating lesions of the small intestine with a clinical course that responds favorably to corticosteroids. We report a case of CMUSE arising in a patient with a history of human immunodeficiency virus infection. This case highlights the unique pathology of CMUSE as well as the potential pathogenesis of this atypical clinical entity.
