 Some characteristic histological features of the biopsy specimens from the alimentary tracts often remind us of specific general diseases, such as viral infection (nuclear inclusion bodies), ischemic change, amyloid deposition, acceleration of apoptosis, presence of dysplastic epithelium, gastritis type A, rectal hamartomatous polyposis, neurofibroma (or ganglioneuroma) and infiltration of leukemic cells. In this article, several general diseases hinted at by these histological changes are listed and the points of histological diagnosis are reviewed.
