The hamartomatous polyps in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome may have malignant potential. To differentiate between hamartomatous and adenomas polyps, vascular characterization can be assessed using noninvasive...
Jejunal intussusception is a known complication of ileojejunal bypass surgery for obesity that may present as an acute abdomen. It can be avoided if the jejunum is anchored to the transverse mesocolon...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A hereditary disease caused by autosomal dominant mutations involving CHROMOSOME 19. It is characterized by the presence of INTESTINAL POLYPS, consistently in the JEJUNUM, and mucocutaneous pigmentation with MELANIN spots of the lips, buccal MUCOSA, and digits.
Small circumscribed melanoses resembling, but differing histologically from, freckles. The concept includes senile lentigo ('liver spots') and nevoid lentigo (nevus spilus, lentigo simplex) and may also occur in association with multiple congenital defects or congenital syndromes (e.g., Peutz-Jeghers syndrome).
A complication of gastrojejunostomy (BILLROTH II PROCEDURE), a reconstructive GASTROENTEROSTOMY. It is caused by acute (complete) or chronic (intermittent) obstruction of the afferent jejunal loop due to HERNIA, intussusception, kinking, VOLVULUS, etc. It is characterized by PAIN and VOMITING of BILE-stained fluid.
Tumors or cancer in the JEJUNUM region of the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL).
Pathological development in the JEJUNUM region of the SMALL INTESTINE.
