Abstract :

 Jejunal diverticulosis is a rare entity.It is usually asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally at laparotomy or upper GI series.The clinical presentations of acquired jejunoileal diverticulosis are vague and diverse.Jejunal diverticulosis is a challenging disorder from a diagnostic perspective, with no truly reliable diagnostic tests. Epigastric cramping pain, bloating or abdominal fullness is usually encountered. Anemia due to iron deficiency and megaloblastic anemia have often been reported and commonly attributed to malabsorpion, steatorrhoea, and vitamin deficit.  Here we present a case of multiple proximal jejunal diverticulosis presenting with acute intestinal obstruction due to multiple omental band adhesions arising from the base of one such diverticulum.
