Caption

Swollen lymphatic vessels (running vertically) in the colon, a condition called lymphangiectasia. The condition leads to a leakage of proteins into the intestines, which are then excreted in faeces. This leads to weight loss, diarrhoea, vomiting and oedema (abnormal fluid accumulation in tissues). Dietary changes are often necessary to compensate for the nutrient loss: fats are replaced by more rapidly-used triglycerides and increased amounts of proteins are required.
