A baboon died of chronic, intractable diarrhoea. At autopsy gross examination revealed oedema, and signs of chronic inflammation in the entire colon. At histology, marked lymphocytic infiltration within the colonic epithelium covering the crypts was found. The term cryptal lymphocytic colitis is proposed for this previously unreported disease in baboons.
