duodenitis

The duodenitis - Inflammation of the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), producing vague gastrointestinal symptoms. It is diagnosed by oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (see gastroscopy): examination of the walls of the upper digestive tract with a flexible viewing instrument. The treatment for duodenitis is similar to that for a duodenal ulcer (see peptic ulcer).
