1/4. Small bowel obstruction caused by anisakiasis of the small intestine: report of a case.

    Enteric anisakiasis is a relatively rare disease that is difficult to diagnose preoperatively. We report a case of small bowel obstruction caused by enteric anisakiasis in a 59-year-old Japanese man who presented with abdominal pain a few hours after eating sliced, raw fish. Because of signs of an intestinal obstruction, a laparotomy was performed. Focal thickening and stenosis of the ileocecal region were seen about 100 cm from the end of the ileum and the lesion was excised. We found a moving anisakis thrusting its head into the mucosa of the excised small intestine. Histopathological examination revealed the infiltration of eosinophils in all layers of the intestinal wall and severe edema. Enteric anisakiasis is very rare, and its diagnosis is usually only made after laparotomy. Nevertheless, when signs of acute abdomen develop after the ingestion of raw fish, such as sushi or sashimi, the possibility of enteric anisakiasis should be borne in mind.

2/4. Intestinal anisakiasis: clinical and radiologic features.

    We report the clinical and radiologic features of 12 patients with acute intestinal anisakiasis. diagnosis of anisakiasis was made immunologically by positive antibody to anisakis larvae and a recent history of raw fish intake. Severe abdominal pain was a major symptom in these patients-half experienced fluid levels indicating ileus on plain x-ray films of the abdomen. Radiologic findings included irregular thickening of the jejunum, ileum, or colon, with mucosal edema and luminal narrowing with dilatation of the proximal intestine. In two cases a thread-like filling defect suggesting a worm was visualized on the x-ray film. These findings were interpreted as anisakiasis. Although ileus developed in some patients, all were treated and cured completely without surgery.

3/4. Intestinal anisakiasis: first reported case in thailand.

    A case of intestinal anisakiasis is reported. The patient came with the symptoms of acute abdominal obstruction. The diagnosis was obtained by identification of the parasite in the tissue sections of the resected segment of the small intestine. This case appears to be the first reported case in thailand.

4/4. Anisakidosis: a cause of intestinal obstruction from eating sushi.

    We report a case of strangulating small bowel obstruction in a 60-yr-old Japanese woman caused by anisakidosis (previously known as anisakiasis). With the increasing popularity of Japanese cuisine such as sushi in the united states, the incidence of anisakidosis is expected to increase. Intestinal anisakidosis can now be treated temporarily, but this condition may cause a serious obstruction afterwards, as evidenced by this particular case. Over 13,500 cases were reviewed in both the Japanese and English literature, and we discuss the prevention of anisakidosis without negatively altering the taste of the raw fish.
