Collagenous Sprue - The New England Journal of Medicine, December 10, 1970

Collagenous Sprue is a distinctive lesion of the intestinal mucosa associated with progressive malabsorption. The intestinal

Thereafter, bands of eosinophilic hyaline material within the lamina propria become increasingly apparent. As the disease progresses, the mucosa becomes progressively thinner. Therapy, including the gluten-free diet, does not help. Some cases currently designated refractory or unclassified Sprue many prove to be Collagenous Sprue.

It does a disservice to people newly diagnosed with collagenous sprue to print articles that are so old. As a patient who FORMERLY had c. sprue, I can testify that, with proper care by those practitioners (Dr. Green - my doctor - of Columbia Univ. NYC) who are most familiar with the disease, collagenous sprue can be cured. It is no longer the "death knell" that it used to be.
