    For a problem like this , I assume that he has come to his gastroenterologist doctor. I shall comment only in relation to antinuclear antibodies and it is what I specialize . By itself, does not diagnose any medical condition and may not have any relationship . However, a disease that gives a positive test result for antinuclear antibodies, makes you think , in my field of expertise, in scleroderma . It is a condition that causes hardening of the skin and may involve the esophagus, stomach and intestine, but it would be a very rare cause .
