Malabsorption is a very important topic that impacts the health of people all over the world. The main objective of the present study is to review the literature regarding malabsorption and the role of microbes in malabsorption. Malabsorption can be attributed by several factors such as bacteria, vitamins, and disturbance of intestinal mucosa.
