Abstract

The Authors describe a case of double jejunal diverticulum, characterized by the presence of a leiomyosarcoma in one diverticulum and ectopic pancreatic mucosa in the other. The rarity of the occurrence of a leiomyosarcoma in the diverticular area is outlined; only few cases have been reported in Literature, excluding those originating, from Meckel's diverticulum. Barium X-rays of the small intestine allowed the neoplasia to be discovered, while an Echo-Color-Doppler examination suggested the histological type given the high vascularization typical of leiomyosarcomas.
