COLUCCI, Alexandra; GIUBI, Jorge  and  FERREIRA, Rosa. Neuromuscular and vascular hamartoma of the small intestine: a case report. Cir. parag. [online]. 2023, vol.47, n.3, pp.37-39. ISSN 2307-0420.

Small bowel neoplasms are extremely rare (2%) and generally malfor- mative, neuromuscular and vascular hamartoma being even rarer with approximately 28 cases reported since 1982, when it was first described. As more common clinical manifestations, obstructive abdominal pain and occlusive pictures in the intestinal lumen are described, however, it can also mimic clinical features of inflammatory bowel disease and other reactive conditions. Imaging studies may show signs of stricture, intus- susception, or directly a polypoid mass. Surgical resection is curative and no recurrences have been reported.

Keywords : Hamartoma; neuromuscular and vascular hamartoma; small intestine.
