  • Cryptitis and crypt abscesses are not feature of A-GVHD and should be differentiated from "popcorn lesions", which show apoptotic cells instead of neutrophils along the crypt lining and in the crypt lumen.

  • Patients with cutaneous and hepatic A-GVHD frequently have apoptosis in their colon biopsies, without any intestinal symptoms [ 4 ] . This may represent sub-clinical intestinal A-GVHD if the apoptosis is observed in relation to the crypts [ 10 ] . If other findings (Table 4) are present in the absence of crypt apoptosis, it may represent evidence of past A-GVHD or due to other etiologic factors such as chronic infections and inflammatory bowel disease.

  • In addition to other histopathological features described in association with A-GVHD, significance of apoptosis, crypt abscess, and crypt loss has been emphasized [ 4 11 12 13 14 15 ] . However, the distribution pattern of apoptosis in colonic mucosa in A-GVHD has not been methodically evaluated.

  • 'Cryptitis' has been described in association with A-GVHD, but these studies do not define the term [ 6 12 13 ] . Although reference had been made to crypt abscesses in these reports, it is evident that the researchers were looking at the apoptotic debris in gland lumina and suggested 'crypt abscess-like' changes [ 14 ] .
