Small bowel endoscopy has now become a routine investigation. The most common methods to visualize the small bowel are balloon-assisted enteroscopy and capsule endoscopy. Currently, the most common indications for small bowel endoscopy are obscure gastrointestinal bleeding and suspected or established Crohn's disease. Common findings of small bowel endoscopy include arteriovascular malformations, erosions, ulcers, and edema in the mucosa. However, there are myriad uncommon small bowel conditions which can now be visualized endoscopically. These include vasculitis, neuroendocrine tumors, familial polyposis syndromes such as Peutz-Jeghers syndrome; ulcerative celiac disease; enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma; and infections such as Whipple's disease, tuberculosis, and blastomycosis. The aim of this video is to demonstrate the endoscopic characteristics of various unusual but very important small bowel diseases.
