Intestinal biopsies

The neuropathological examination of intestinal biopsies is nowadays an essential tool in the diagnostic of neuronal malfunction and dysmotility of the gastrointestinal tract. This includes Hirschsprung disease, other forms of a-, hypo- and dysganglionosis as well as intestinal neuronal dysplasia.

The analysis is mainly done by enzyme histochemical techniques which is performed on serial frozen sections.
