The correct diagnosis and treatment of gastric anisakiasis have been facilitated by the popularization of gastrofiberscopy and the remarkable progress in medical electronic techniques. However endoscopic research of intestinal anisakiasis has not progressed as rapidly because of technical difficulty. In addition, when resection of affected foci was carried out in intestinal anisakiasis, larvae were not always found as they sometimes pass through the wall, extending into the abdominal cavity. For the above reasons intestinal anisakiasis is found less frequently than the gastric form.
