We recently detected an annular ulcer thought to have been caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) when we performed small bowel capsule endoscopy on a patient with suspected small-bowel bleeding and a history of frequent use of oral NSAIDs. The patient was a 64-year-old woman who complained of bloody stools and abdominal pain. The annular ulcer showed concentric stenosis, which caused retention of the capsule endoscope. NSAIDs are some of the most frequently used anti-inflammatory analgesics, and even more frequent use can be expected with the aging of society. No reports to date appear to have described retention of a capsule endoscope due to annular ulceration caused by NSAIDs. We report herein our experience with a patient showing small-bowel ulcer caused by NSAIDs.
