Abstract

Studies have shown that the circulating citrulline concentration is decreased in patients with proximal small bowel villous atrophy from coeliac disease and more so in patients with extensive damage to the intestinal mucosa, but there have been few data on HIV enteritis and tropical enteropathy (TE). Our primary aim was to correlate serum citrulline with the degree of reduction of the enterocyte mass in HIV-infected patients with TE.
