Abstract

A 46‐yr‐oId multiparous cachetic woman presented with severe hypoalbuminemia in the absence of liver disease, proteinuria, and/or protracted starvation. The clinical presentation and work‐up was indicative of protein‐losing enteropathy. She developed an acute partial small bowel obstruction, and a presumptive diagnosis of lymphoma of the small intestine was entertained. Surgical resection of the terminal ileum revealed trans‐mural involvement of the bowel by endometriosis. Her postoperative recovery was uneventful, with return of her serum albumin levels to normal.
