Abstract

Double contrast small bowel enema in a patient with selective amyloidosis of the duodenum and jejunum revealed an unusual radiologic pattern, mimicking multiple polyposis. Many submucosal polypoid lesions, sessile or pedunculated, were scattered throughout the duodenum and proximal jejunum. the lesions had smooth borders and did not show any retraction at the base. Other typical radiologic patterns of intestinal amyloidosis described in the literature were not observed in the present case. Differential diagnosis from multiple polyposis and diffuse lymphoproliferative neoplastic diseases is discussed
