Abstract

Jejunal diverticulitis is a very rare cause of acute abdomen. The treatment of choice in acute perforated jejunal diverticulitis is intestinal resection with primary anastomosis of the affected area. Data on long-term results, postoperative complications and the nature of this illness is limited. To our knowledge, a recurrent perforated jejunal diverticulitis has never have been reported in the literature. In this case,we present a patient who suffered from a recurrence of perforated jejunal diverticulitis 13 weeks after the initial intestinal resection. After the second intestinal resection (due to the recurrent infection), the patient suffered from a third period of jejunal diverticulitis.
