Abstract

Primary neoplasms of the small bowel are rare, accounting for less than 3% of all gastrointestinal tumors.1 Diagnosis of SB malignancy is difficult, as signs and symptoms are typically nonspecific including anemia, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, weight loss, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.2 Many patients remain asymptomatic or are not diagnosed until at an advanced stage of disease or severe complications arise, such as bowel obstruction, bleeding, or perforation.2.
