Frotis del tejido duodenal

La biopsia del tejido duodenal se realiza al insertar un tubo especial en el duodeno a través de la nariz o la boca. Cuando el tubo se encuentra en el lugar adecuado, se succiona parte del líquido localizado en el duodeno. Cuando termina el procedimiento, se retira el tubo y se envía la muestra al laboratorio para su evaluación. El examen se realiza para diagnosticar infección parasitaria del intestino delgado.Frotis del tejido duodenal
