Clinical Course and Outcome

Small bowel biopsies were normal. No H pylori was seen on histology, although serology was positive. Repeated endoscopy (before the patient was started on H pylori therapy) showed improved endoscopic findings and decreased lymphocytic infiltration histologically. Anemia improved with iron supplementation, and the patient was treated for H pylori. The patient continues to have no gastrointestinal symptoms and has a stable hemoglobin level.
