thank you.
you not mention your symptoms or complaints.
are you suffering from chronic abd. pain,altered bowel habit,gradual weight loss ?
inflammation of the ileum is called ileitis which is the lower part of the small intestine.
the biopsy abnormality may be due to crohn's disease or non specific ulcer.
no granuloma is found,so TB is excluded.
consult a gastroenterologist.
