Abstract

The last decade has brought major advances in knowledge of the physiology of intestinal fat absorption which, in turn, has led to a better understanding of the pathophysiology of fat malabsorption. The purpose of this review is to outline the normal mechanisms of fat absorption and to identify, insofar as is possible, the manner in which various gastrointestinal diseases compromise one or more of these mechanisms, and therefore cause steatorrhea.
