  • Whipples disease

    Pathophysiology: Whipple´s disease is caused by chronic infection with the bacterium Tropheryma whipplei. T whipplei appears intra- as well as extracellulary and can be detected by a PAS-staining of intestinal biopsies within infected macrophages, indicated by a deep red colour representing the bacteria or parts of their cell walls.

    Disease statistics: In 1987, parliament changed the law: to claim for “whiplash” injury the claimant had to report the accident to the police and bear the first $317 (indexed for inflation) of medical expenses. In 1988/1989, presumably when there would have been more vehicles on the road than in 1982/1983, there were only 2004 claims for “whiplash”, 47% less than in 1982/1983 and a remarkable 68% less than in Sweden.

    Treatment: Whipple’s disease is a bacterial infection that can lead to death if not treated properly. You will normally be on daily antibiotics for one to two years. Taking antimalarial medication for 12 to 18 months, using iron supplements to assist with anemia, taking vitamin D, vitamin K, calcium, and magnesium supplements, maintaining a high-calorie diet due to lack of nutrient absorption, taking corticosteroids to help ease inflammation.

    Research: The NINDS supports research on disorders that affect the central nervous system such as Whipple's disease. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases also support research on disorders such as Whipple's disease. Much of this research is aimed at learning more about these disorders and finding ways to prevent, treat, and, ultimately, cure them.
