Occult intestinal haemorrhage due to lipoma of the small bowel detected with the combined use of the new endoscopic techniques. A report of two cases.
Dig Liver Dis. 2008 Apr; 40(4):306-9.DL

Abstract

We report two unusual cases of occult intestinal bleeding due to lipoma of the small bowel. Both the patients underwent several inconclusive endoscopic and radiological procedures before the diagnosis of these lesions that was possible using video capsule endoscopy and double balloon enteroscopy. In the first case, the finding of capsule endoscopy was confirmed using enteroscopy, allowing us to diagnose the ileal mass. In the second and more recent case, we used double balloon enteroscopy for the further characterisation and management of the ileal lipoma. Lipoma is a very rare cause of intestinal bleeding and we describe the management and the outcome of our patients.
