We report a surgical case of intestinal anisakiasis in which we identified a complete larva. A 48-year-old man complaining of epigastralgia after eating roasted mackerel was admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of ileus with peritonitis. Abdominal CT showed dilatation and partial thickening of the small intestine. An emergency operation was carried out. On laparotomy, severe stricture of the jejunum was revealed. The affected intestine was resected. A larva whose head was invading the mucosa was found in the resected portion of the jejunum, and we diagnosed the case as intestinal anisakiasis.
