(9) Spigelman et al (46) developed a 4-stage classification (0-TV) system for evaluating the severity of duodenal adenomatosis in individuals with FAP (Table 2), and based on the degree of risk of developing carcinoma, recommendations on the frequency of surveillance and treatment options were issued (Table 3).
The histopathological lesions of epithelial hyperplasia, glandular adenomatosis, necrosis, haemorrhages and thrombosis of blood vessels and the detection (Figure 3b) of curved intracellular bacteria in epithelial cells (a morphology compatible with Lawsonia intracellularis) by WS silver staining were considered sufficient evidence to establish the diagnosis [29].
