Jejunal diverticulosis is a rare malady and it is often asymptomatic. It may lead to chronic non-specific or acute symptoms such as malabsorption, intussusception, obstruction, bleeding, perforation and abscess formation. It usually is seen as an incidental finding on computerized tomography, enteroclysis or during an emergency operation. Since the advent of double balloon enteroscopy and capsule endoscopy, several cases of small bowel diverticulosis with complications have recently been reported. Lipomas are the rare benign tumors of the small intestine with no malignant potential and they are mostly incidentally encountered during investigation of the gastrointestinal tract. We report here on a case of massive small bowel bleeding with jejunal diverticulosis, and a pedunculated elongated lipoma was incidentally found. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2010;40:190-194)
