Focal duodenitis, pill camera view. Duodenitis is non-ulcerated inflammation (red patches) of the lining of the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. In focal duodenitis the inflammation is limited to a specific area, rather than being systemic. Duodenitis typically leads to vague discomfort on eating. Its causes are poorly understood, and hence its treatment is palliative rather than specific. A pill camera is a pill-sized camera that is swallowed to image the digestive tract.
