Malabsorptive disorders of the gastrointestinal tract are common in the industrialised countries and especially among the Caucasians. Little or no report of this condition exists in many African countries. Reports from Nigeria are mainly in the paediatric age with little among the adults. Over the years, literature on clinical decisions, reports, investigative modalities and their results have been critically reviewed and have shown a lack of comprehensive management plan adaptable to our environment. To prevent morbidity and mortality it is thus imperative to identify patients with malabsorptive disorders of the gastro-intestinal tract on time and involve experienced gastroenterologists in the management.
