Multiple jejunal diverticula with jejunal volvulus: a case report

Jejunal diverticula are a rare clinical disease that was first reported by Sommering in 1974. Jejunal volvulus is the torsion of the jejunum and its mesentery, and is a medical emergency. There are no specific symptoms for jejunal diverticula, making this disease difficult to identify. Furthermore, this can lead to volvulus, and further lead to ileus in some cases. In this report, we present a rare case of a 54-yold male diagnosed with multiple jejunal diverticula with jejunal volvulus, aiming to further enhance the understanding of this disease.
