Non-surgical management of
recurrent perforation of a jejunal diverticulum following previous segmental
bowel resection: a case report
Perforations of jejunal
diverticula are uncommon and repeated symptomatic perforations have been
reported only twice before in the literature. This is the first case report of
recurrent perforation of a jejunal diverticulum to be successfully managed
We report a recurrent perforation
of a jejunal diverticulum in an 87-year-old Caucasian man who presented with a
1-week history of epigastric pain. The diagnosis of a perforated jejunal
diverticulum was made from the appearances of the abdominal computed tomography
scan together with the presence of jejunal diverticula noted at the time of a
previous laparotomy for the first perforation of a jejunal diverticulum.
Whilst this case report by itself
does not add to the knowledge we already have of jejunal diverticula, it is one
report of a rare condition and more reports are required in the future to
establish the recurrence rate of jejunal diverticula perforation and how
perforated jejunal diverticula are best managed.
