It has two well-defined types; lymphocytic colitis, characterized by intraepithelial lymphocytes, and collagenous colitis, characterized by the presence of sub-epithelial collagenous band > 10 mm in thickness.2 Though diarrhoea is a presenting symptom in the majority of patients, multiple biopsy-proven cases of microscopic colitis have been reported in the literature in which constipation is the only symptom.3-5
(29) Collagenous sprue resembles both collagenous colitis and collagenous gastritis, with a patchy subepithelial collagen layer greater than 10 im thick and showing entrapment of capillaries and fibroblasts.

In addition, several renal complications were reported, including six cases of Fanconi syndrome and nine cases of acute renal insufficiency, and there was one case of collagenous colitis.
Boswellic acid's anti-inflammatory actions make it an incredibly important tool in the management of inflammatory bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and collagenous colitis.

In the literature, collagenous colitis, glutaraldehyde exposure, infectious organisms (Campylobacter, cytomegalovirus, Escherichia coli 0157:H7, Salmonella, and Strongyloides), inflammatory bowel disease, ischemia, and medications (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, vasopressin) have been implicated as potential causes [17].
Her past medical history includes collagenous colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, hypertension, GERD and depression/anxiety.
This is a rare entity characterised by a thickened subepithelial band of collagen and chronic inflammatory infiltrate in the gastric mucosa, similar to that seen in collagenous colitis. The disease may be limited to the stomach, then usually in children and young adults presenting with anaemia due to gastric bleeding, and demonstrate focal nodularity of the gastric mucosa on endoscopy.
Collagenous colitis, lymphocytic colitis, and diversion colitis are more recently recognized inflammatory bowel diseases.
