Abstract

A patient with recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding from a jejunal lymphangioma is described. Multiple preoperative diagnostic studies, including sonde enteroscopy, failed to reveal a bleeding source. A bleeding lymphangioma was subsequently detected by intraoperative enteroscopy of the small bowel. Intraoperative enteroscopy was a useful diagnostic technique in this patient with otherwise unexplained gastrointestinal bleeding.
