Jejunal diverticulaA 64-year old man admitted with profuse melaena of two day's duration.
There was nothing in the history which gave any clue to the origin of
the bleeding. Endoscopy and colonoscopy were normal. An angiogram was
unhelpful and a red cell scan showed a hot spot in the region of the
proximal small bowel. Enteroscopy confirmed bleeding in the region of
some jejunal diverticula. The bleeding continued and after 11 units of
blood the patient went to surgery. The 20 cm area of small bowel
diverticula were resected.
