Muestra de tejido del intestino delgado

Para obtener una muestra de intestino delgado se utiliza un endoscopio flexible que se pasa a través del tracto digestivo hasta el intestino delgado. En el intestino delgado se toma una pequeña muestra y se coloca sobre el portaobjetos del microscopio. La muestra se tiñe y se secciona en rebanadas para realizar un examen histológico del tejido. Esta prueba se realiza para diagnosticar una infección o una infestación parasitaria en el intestino delgado.Muestra de tejido del intestino delgado
