Abstract

Small bowel tumors are infrequent and enigmatic, accounting for 1-3% of all gastrointestinal tumors. The most frequent primary small intestinal tumors are neuroendocrine tumors, adenocarcinomas, lymphomas and GIST, but metastatic small bowel tumors are more frequent. The small intestine has been traditionally explored with radiologic studies, but the recent introduction of videocapsule endoscopy and device-assisted enteroscopy have improved detection of small bowel neoplastic lesions.
