Abstract

Small-bowel leiomyoma is a rare tumour. The authors report a case complicated by severe bleeding. Esophagus-gastro-duodenal endoscopy was not decisive enough, while TC was the most reliable instrumental investigation. Because of dimensions basic than 10 cm, the presence of a pseudocapsule end the absence of cariokinetic figures, the histopathologic test supports the hypothesis that it was a benign disease. One year follow-up, negative for relapse, confirm that the lesion is benign.
