 The small intestine which was once inaccessible to observation has become observable through the development of the double balloon endoscope and the capsule endoscope. Detailed observation was enabled and it became possible to find small lesions. In addition, intestinal tuberculosis without a primary lesion is often present in lungs of patients in an immunological deficiency state, and the frequency of this disease has increased. However, it is still difficult to make a diagnosis based only on imaging. To make a diagnosis, it is helpful to make a further study using the PCR method or QFT-2G.
