Sequential stenotic strictures of the small bowel leading to obstruction

World J Gastroenterol. 2007 Oct 28;13(40):5391-3. doi: 10.3748/wjg.v13.i40.5391.


Small bowel obstructions (SBOs) are primarily caused by adhesions, hernias, neoplasms, or inflammatory strictures. Intraluminal strictures are an uncommon cause of SBO. This report describes our findings in a unique case of sequential, stenotic intraluminal strictures of the small intestine, discusses the differential diagnosis of intraluminal intestinal strictures, and reviews the literature regarding intraluminal pathology.
