A literature search was conducted using PubMed to identify English-language articles published from the database's inception to May 1, 2021. Search terms included 'enteritis,' 'enteropathy,' 'small bowel injury,' 'drug induced' and 'medication induced' alone or in combination. Abstracts were individually screened and reviewed by the first author (S.H). In our review, we included original studies including randomised controlled trials (RCTs), multicenter studies, comparative studies, clinical trials and observational studies, in addition to meta-analyses, systematic reviews, review articles and case reports. Only human studies were included. Editorials, letters to the editor and book chapters were excluded. Additional relevant original studies and articles referenced in other articles but did not appear in our original search were identified and included.
