Sammanfattning

Endoscopy with histopathological assessment is an established practice to confirm gastrointestinal graft-versus-host disease (GI-GVHD). However, the clinical relevance of this approach in children is incompletely evaluated. In a retrospective cohort study, we investigated the frequency of treatment changes in response to histopathological findings in all children (<18 years) in Sweden who underwent endoscopy for suspected GI-GVHD (2000-2013) after receiving hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Sixty-eight children with ninety-one endoscopic occasions were enrolled. At the time of endoscopy, anti-GI-GVHD treatment was ongoing in 71% (65/91). In 18% (12/65) with ongoing treatment, no histopathological evidence of GI-GVHD or another cause to justify anti-GI-GVHD treatment was found. In 48% (44/91), endoscopy with histopathological assessment led to changes in the treatment regimen. Re-endoscopy was more frequent among those with treatment changes, versus unchanged treatment, 39% (17/44) and 13% (6/47), respectively (P = .007). Histopathological findings generating treatment changes were as follows: GI-GVHD in 68% (30/44), normal histology in 25% (11/44), and an alternative diagnosis in 7% (3/44). In conclusion, this study supports that endoscopy with histopathological assessment should be considered in all children with suspected GI-GVHD.
