This article focuses on a study related to prospective audit of the incidence of preparation colitis associated with sodium phosphate (NaP). NaP is a common and effective preparation for colonoscopy. However, it has been reported as causing transient mucosal ulcers of no clinical significance. PAC occurs in more than 3% of people receiving NaP preparation for colonoscopy. This can confuse clinical management if not recognized. The study concludes that all endoscopists using NaP must be aware of the features of PAC.

    Human cases of echinostomiasis have been sporadically diagnosed by extracting worms in the endoscopy in Korea and Japan. Most of these were caused by Echinostoma hortense infection. However, in the present study, we detected 2 live worms of Echinostoma cinetorchis in the ascending colon of a...
