Abstract

Summary

An intestinal perfusion technique has been used to study absorption of glucose from free glucose and the disaccharide maltose in a patient with congenital glucose-galactose malabsorption.

Speculation

In patients with congenital glucose-galactose malabsorption a disaccharidase-related transport system is of no importance as a physiologic mechanism in compensating for the primary defect of monosaccharide absorption.
