The bacterial flora of small intestine of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) was evaluated. Patients were divided into 3 groups:a) IBS with diarrhoea (Group I), (b) IBS with predominantly constipation (Group II) AND (c) IBS with alternating diarrhoes and constipation (group III). One patient of group I had significant colonization of jejunal fluid in group I, while 50% of group II patients had significant jejunal bacterial colonization. The study indicates that alteration of bowel mobility may play a role in the enhanced bacterial colonization in IBS patients.
