Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) typically appears with severe chronic diarrhea in the few days after birth and rapidly causes dehydration and metabolic acidosis. In this context, presenting two novel cases, we underline the crucial importance of mutation analysis for the diagnosis of this disease that may be easily misdiagnosed.

Abstract

Microvillous inclusion disease (MVID) typically appears with severe chronic diarrhea in the few days after birth and rapidly causes dehydration and metabolic acidosis. In this context, presenting two novel cases, we underline the crucial importance of mutation analysis for the diagnosis of this disease that may be easily misdiagnosed.
