[Lipoid hyperplasia of the ileocecal valve. A report of 2 cases operated on in the occlusive phase].Minerva Chir. 1992 Jan; 47(1-2):73-5.MC
Two cases of lipomatosis of the ileocaecal valve, causing intestinal obstruction are reported. Surgery was performed on an emergency basis. A careful assessment of clinical and radiological findings is important, in order to distinguish such as a disease from caecal carcinoma. In fact this is a benign disease, for which conservative surgery is indicated.
