Abstract

Small bowel neoplasms continue to be an enigma to the clinicians. The insidious onset, the subtlety of the signs the lack of definitive pre-operative diagnosti tests with often variable efficacies makes them difficult to diagnose. Small bowel consciousness is crucial in diagnosing and treating these tumours. This review aims to increase awareness of small bowel tumours in terms of epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment.
