OBJECTIVES: The aims of this research were to determine the number of chromosomal aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes and to evaluate the number of circulating lymphocytes with CD103, integrin expressed on intraepithelial lymphocytes and preserved in enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma, in patients with newly diagnosed Crohn's disease, celiac disease, and healthy controls. METHODS: During the period of 30 months, we included 44 patients. Chromosome aberrations were analyzed in peripheral blood lymphocytes by a single cytogeneticist. Multicolor flow cytometric was used for immunophenotyping of peripheral blood lymphocytes. RESULTS: We found a significantly higher number of chromosomal aberrations/100 metaphases in the celiac and Crohn's disease group compared with the controls (P=0.01) and they also had a significantly higher number of aberrant cells compared with the controls (P<0.001). There was no statistically significant difference between the groups with respect to the percentage of CD103+ and CD8+CD103+ cells between groups (P=0.16 and 0.41, respectively) and no correlation between the total number of chromosomal aberrations and the percentage of CD103+ and CD8+CD103+ cells (P=0.06 and 0.06, respectively). CONCLUSION: Patients with active celiac and newly diagnosed Crohn's disease, before treatment initiation, have a significantly increased number of chromosomal aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes. No dissemination of intraepithelial cells in the blood and correlation to the chromosomal aberration was found.
