Immunodiagnosis for Intestinal Anisakiasis

  • M. Tsuji


Endoscopical examination provides a definite diagnosis for gastric anisakiasis but without bowel surgery to identify Anisakis larve it is very difficult to diagnose intestinal anisakiasis. Eating raw fish within a few days of the onset of disease is an important factor, while laboratory findings may only suggest nonspecific acute inflammatory changes. Therefore, immuno-serological examination is very important for the clinical diagnosis of intestinal anisakiasis.
