    Abstract

    A patient complained of severe diarrhoea for about four years. About 2.5 m of the jejunum was resected and duodenal polyps were also removed at laparotomy. Histologically, they were tubular or tubulovillus adenomas, which closely resembled colonic adenomas. No malignant change was detected in these adenomas. Severe inflammatory changes were seen in the jejunal mucosa and various gut hormones were seen in the same area. As far as we know no similar case with adenomatosis of the small intestine has been reported. We were unable to establish any association between adenomas and severe watery diarrhoea.
