Lipomatosis of the ileocecal valve causing recurrent small bowel obstruction.Int Surg. 1985 Jan-Mar; 70(1):81-2.IS
A case of lipomatosis of the ileocecal valve causing recurrent intestinal obstruction is described. Barium enema with air contrast provides an important diagnostic tool. If confirmed intraoperatively and by histopathologic examination on frozen section, limited resection of the ileum and cecum is advocated rather than blind right hemicolectomy.
