Differential diagnoses of CMUSE include IBD especially Crohn's disease, NSAIDs-associated enteritis, intestinal lymphoma, or infectious enteritis such as cytomegalovirus or tuberculosis.
Surgical treatment has been reported to have a role in patients with suspected CMUSE with a sign of bowel obstruction or if the diagnosis remains uncertain.
The etiology of CMUSE has not been clarified yet and pathogenesis is still poorly understood [3].
Immunological pathogenesis of CMUSE is supported by the favourable therapeutical effect of systemic glucocorticosteroids [3].
