Term Detail
MP term:decreased small intestinal villus size
Synonym: reduced small intestinal villus size
MP id: MP:0008142
Definition: reduced size of the tiny hair-like projections that protrude from the inside of the small intestine that contain blood vessels that capture digested nutrients that are absorbed through the intestinal wall; the villi increase the absorptive surface area of the small intestine by approximately 30-fold
Number of paths to term: 2
