Abstract

Tumors of the small bowel are uncommon and seldom suspected on a clinical basis. Together with the relative inaccessibility of the small bowel to endoscopic investigation, the rarity of these tumors undoubtedly delays the diagnosis. Small bowel tumors may be an interesting field of application for enterocscopy, which now can be readily performed with dedicated enterocscopic evaluation in patients with suspected small bowel neoplasia could improve prognosis and treatment. Enteroscopy may also play an important role in the surveillance of inherited polyposis syndromes, as in other precancerous condition of the small bowel. In Peutz-Jeghers syndrome it may reduce polyp-induced complications and improve planning for surgery; in familial adenomatous polyposis it may contribute to preventing upper gastrointestinal tract cancer.
