Collagenous gastritis, collagenous sprue, and collagenous colitis share striking histologic similarities and occur together in some patients. They also share some drug and disease associations. Pediatric cases of collagenous gastritis, however, lack most of these associations. The etiologies ofthe collagenous gastroenteritides are not known, so it is not clear whetherthey are similar because they share pathogeneses, or because they indicate a common histologic response to varying injuries. The features, disease anddrug associations, and the inquiries into the pathogenesis of these disorders are reviewed.
