Enterolith ileus complicating jejunal diverticulosis
Jejunal diverticulosis is uncommon and usually asymptomatic. One of the rarest complications is ileus due to migrated enteroliths formed in the diverticula. We present a case of a 95-year-old man admitted with small bowel obstruction. During operation extensive jejunal diverticulosis was found along with intraluminal enteroliths causing obstruction of the ileum. An enterotomy was made and three 3 × 3 × 2 cm enteroliths were removed. The patient was discharged on the sixth post-operative day. Less than 50 similar cases have been reported worldwide.
