Corrosive jejunitis due to ingestion of nitric acid.

Abstract

Corrosive damage to the small bowel is not common; stasis of acid in the stomach usually prevents extensive jejunal damage. The case presented herein is unusual because the patient had a gastroenterostomy and sustained extensive injury of the jejunum after ingesting acid. The patient survived but developed a jejunal stricture that eventually required resection.
