Abstract

A 30-year-old man presented with iron deficiency anemia and occult blood in his stools. Both upper and lower gastrointestinal tract endoscopy were initially unrevealing. This case illustrates the importance of small bowel follow through/enteroclysis supplemented by endoscopie examination and biopsy for adenocarcinoma of the proximal jejunum.
