Enterolithiasis Academic Article uri icon


  • We have seen two cases of enterolithiasis in middle-aged Bedouin women. In the first, the cause was prestenotic saccular dilatation from a postoperative stricture of the terminal ileum. In the second, stones formed in congenital diverticula in the terminal ileum and cecum. In both patients, the diagnosis was established by small-bowel enema.
