Abstract

Primary neoplasms of the small intestine are relatively rare. Early diagnosis and treatment of small bowel disease is difficult due to the low sensitivity of conventional examination methods. Double-balloon enteroscopy allows an exact examination of the small intestine, including a biopsy and other procedures, and the use of this technique provides an improvement in the diagnosis and treatment of small bowel disease. We report a case of a cavernous hemangioma of the distal jejunum that was detected by the use of double-balloon enteroscopy in a patient with recurrent periumbilical pain and small bowel obstruction that was treated by a small bowel segmental resection.
