Non-tropical sprue is rare in the WestIndies and tropical sprue has been reported only from the islands of Puerto Rico, Haiti and Cuba. Heavy infection with S. stercoralis has been reported from Jamaica (Bras et al., 1964), Puerto Rico (Rivera et al., 1970) and now, for the first time, Trinidad.

Malabsorption Of Folate Polyglutamates In Tropical Sprue

Tropical sprue affects the structure and function of the jejunal mucosa, the principal site of folate absorption. The most likely explanation for the severe folate deficiency found in this disease is malabsorption of dietary folate. In some patients with sprue and severe folate deficiency, however, normal absorption of folie

Tropical Sprue: A Review

Tropical sprue in Puerto Rico occurred mainly in a population subject to tropical enteropathy, and malabsorption of vitamin Bl2 has been demonstrated in over half of a sample of the asymptomatic rural population (Klipstein et al. 1972). A collaborative study provided an opportunity to compare the development of sprue in previously fit, young

Preliminary surveys of returnees from certain parts of Southeast Asia suggest that the incidence may be even higher in that part of the world.
