Chronic diarrhea is a common clinical symptom in the digestive system, which usually manifests as abdominal discomfort and increased stool. Microscopic colitis is a group of clinicopathological syndromes characterized by chronic watery diarrhea, normal colonic mucosa under colonoscopy, and special changes under colonoscopy. The incidence of microscope colitis is increasing year by year. Colonoscopy of patients with microscope colitis is generally normal or roughly normal, and chronic diarrhea is similar to microscope colitis in clinical symptoms, so microscope colitis is easily misdiagnosed as chronic diarrhea, and the misdiagnosis rate is as high as 80%, but two The treatment principles of the two diseases are different, so the differential diagnosis of the two diseases has important clinical significance. Based on this, this article mainly studies the proportion of microscopic colitis among patients with negative colonoscopy, analyzes whether chronic diarrhea and microscopic colitis are related to gender, and finally counts the number of patients with microscopic colitis. In the case of no cure, self-healing after one year, and research on the treatment and care of the two diseases. In this article, 1500 patients with chronic diarrhea who came to our hospital for examination were used as the experimental group of this experiment, and the endoscopic results of 1230 normal people were used as the control group of this experiment, and the ratio of gender in the experimental group with negative colonoscopy was analyzed. , And performed a microscope colitis examination on patients with chronic diarrhea who were colonoscopy-negative, and analyzed the ratio of patients with microscope colitis and only colitis-negative chronic patients among these people, and obtained the following results: In 1500 cases of chronic diarrhea Among the patients, 55% had colonoscopy organic disease, and among these 55% patients, 33% showed microscopic colitis. The proportion of women suffering from microscopic colitis was the same as that of male patients. Almost, P>0.05, no statistical significance. The prognosis of microscopic colitis is good and it is a benign disease.
