The article presents a response to the quiz which seeks to identify various diagnostic procedures needed to determine the unsuspected cause of chronic diarrhea. According to the author, ultrasonography and capsule endoscopy play an interesting role in the detection of some pathological features relevant to human bowel. He mentions that the utilization of capsule endoscopy may be significant in the management of patients with chronic diarrhea.
