Congenital diarrhea 7 with exudative enteropathy
MedGen UID:
862953
Concept ID:
C4014516
Disease or Syndrome
Diarrhea-7 (DIAR7) is a protein-losing enteropathy characterized by early-onset nonbloody watery diarrhea and unresponsiveness to soy-based or elemental formulas. Patients experience failure to thrive, hypogammaglobulinemia with recurrent infections, and require albumin infusions and parenteral nutrition. Hypertriglyceridemia and digital clubbing have been observed (Stephen et al., 2016). The malabsorption can result in severe deficiency of vitamin D and other nutrients (Gupta et al., 2020). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of diarrhea, see DIAR1 (214700).
