The aim of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of pCLE for the duodenum neoplasms. Methods: After training the diagnosis of several typical CLE images of normal mucosas, adenomas and carcinomas of duodenum, 15 case images (5 normal mucosas, 5 adenomas, 5 carcinomas) were selected. 12 different endoscopists (2 ∼ 16 years) diagnosed the images and were compared with the histopathological diagnoses (biopsy, ESD specimen) by the pathologist. Results: The accuracy of the 15 case images diagnosed by the endoscopists was 66.7 ∼ 93.3% ALK inhibitor and the rate did not relate to the years of experience of the endoscopy.
The accuracy of the normal mucosa, adenoma, and carcinoma were 73.3%, 68.3%, 100%, respectively. The accuracy, sensitivity and specificity for carcinomas were 100%. Conclusion: The results of CLE and histopathological diagnoses were relatively high in this study, regardless of the years of experience of the endoscopy. This study suggeste
d that the model image of CLE will make possible to differentiate carcinoma or non-carcinoma. Further studies based on a large number of cases are necessary to clarify this suggestion.

She admitted a hospital due to sudden onset of convulsion. A brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detected numerous small cystic lesions in the brain cortex and basal ganglia. The patient was referred to the Neurology Department
of Kyorin University Hospital for a suspected brain selleck chemical infection such as toxoplasmosis. Methods: The brain MRI showed numerous cystic lesions in exhibiting a typical ‘hole-with-a-dot’ sign that is highly characteristic of NCC. Since the serum antibody and cerebrospinal fluid antibody was positive for NCC she was diagnosed as NCC. Although the eggs and proglottids of Taenia solium were not detected in feaces,capsule endoscopy was performed prior to anthelmintic treatment to determine whether the Taenia solium had exists on the digestive tract. If Taenia solium exist on the digestive tract, the antiparasitic agent may be induce NCC by destroying proglottids. Because the parasite eggs and the hexacanth larvae may moving in systemic.
