Abstract

Environmental Enteric Dysfunction (EED) was first described as a malabsorption syndrome with small intestinal villous flattening among healthy adults in Thailand and other low-resource settings. A similar entity was described in Peace Corps volunteers in South Asia. Several years later, resolution of histopathology and malabsorption after repatriation or immigration to North America was demonstrated.
