Intestinal anisakiasis had been little understood when Ishikura [1,2] described its clinical, pathological and immunological aspects. Following this, about 150 cases of intestinal anisakiasis were reported by 1974 [2,3] in which patients mostly suffered from intestinal obstruction which required surgery. Swollen and hemorrhagic small intestine lesions were demonstrated with an Anisakis larva’s head penetrating into the mucous membrane. Colonic anisakiasis, however, has been infrequently reported, with only 20 cases reported by 1985 [2–6].
