Endoscopic diagnosis of giardiasis

Endoscopic diagnosis of giardiasis

Revista Cubana de Medicina 26(1): 59-65

The endoscopic and histological characteristics of Giardia lamblia-induced lesions in a total of 104 patients with upper digestive syndromes and drainage positive for G. lamblia -having previously discarded other causes of duodenitis-were investigated. Although no unique endoscopic aspect was found, the most frequent image is characterized by edema, reddening, and rather typical erosion. In all cases the presence of the parasite is confirmed by smears taken with an abrasive brush.
