Abstract

The study of 146 patents with liver cirrhosis of different classes using clinical, endoscopic, morphological and immunohistochemical methods revealed characteristic colonic changes. The destructive and atrophic changes in colonic mucosa were associated with increased morphometric parameters of serotonin- and chromogranin A-positive epithelyocytes. Capillary dilatation in colonic mucosa developed earlier than rectal varicose veins and may be an earlier sign of portal colonopathy.
