Computed tomographic features of two cases of acute gastric anisakiasis

Little is known about the detailed computed tomography (CT) features of acute gastric anisakiasis. Our two cases showed transiently swollen gastric folds comprised of the remarkably thickened contrast little-enhanced submucosal layer with little-thickened contrast-enhanced mucosal and muscular-serosal layers on multi-detector row CT. When CT demonstrates the swollen gastric folds in acute abdomen, acute gastric anisakiasis should be included in the differential diagnosis.
