The duodenal biopsies show evidence of previous mucosal injury with regenerative changes. These changes are not felt to be dysplastic or adenomatous in nature based on the lack of increase in glandular profiles, the concomitant presence of active inflammatory infiltrate, and the maturation towards the luminal surface. These findings are all in favor of a reactive rather than neoplastic proliferation.
