FIORUCCI, Gioia et al. Severe spruelike enteropathy due to olmesartan. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2014, vol.106, n.2, pp.142-144. ISSN 1130-0108.

Villous atrophy and negative serologic testing is a diagnostic challenge, and the rarer possibility of drug-induced enteritis should be considered. We report a rare case of severe spruelike enteritis due to olmesartan that completely resolved after withdrawal of the drug. The possibility that patient labeled as "refractory" celiac disease may actually be due to drug treatment should always be taken into consideration, to avoid unnecessary investigations.

Keywords : Celiac disease; Diarrhea; Enteropathy; Histology; Olmesartan.
