案例二:

Session 2: Real case presentation by Dr. Z. John Chen

A53 year male Chinese cardiologist practicing in the US went back to China for a visit. In China, he had increased epigastric discomfort and burning sensation and noticed black stools on several occasions.He thought he might have peptic ulcer disease and self-treated with omeprazole for about a week and the symptoms improved. After returning to the US, he had further testing and was found to have a low hemoglobin and underwent EGD and colonoscopy including terminal ileum examination with completely normal findings. He had H pylori IgA blood test that was also negative. He did have a history of some occasional epigastric discomfort in the past but never had any serious stomach problems. But now he is more concerned about the cause of this episode of apparent GI bleeding. He asked me what he should do. What advice would you give him as a gastroenterologist?
