MOSQUERA-KLINGER, Gabriel  and  HERNANDEZ A, Juan Esteban. A case report of a neuroendocrine tumor in the small intestine with manifest dark digestive bleeding. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.3, pp.318-323. ISSN 0120-9957.

We present the case of a young patient with no history of illness who developed obvious bleeding in the form of melena, hematochezia, and severe anemia. Initial endoscopic studies were normal, but video capsule endoscopy (VCE) revealed an ulcerated subepithelial lesion in the jejunum leading to suspicion of GIST or a neuroendocrine tumor. It was marked in enteroscopy, extension studies showed that it was normal. Therefore, local resection was scheduled by laparoscopy, making diagnosis and management of a neuroendocrine tumor.

Keywords : Hemorrhage; small intestine; neoplasms of the jejunum; neuroendocrine tumor.
