Abstract: Jejunal diverticula is a rare condition. Usually, it is clinically silent and becomes symptomatic only when complications develop. Perforation of a jejunal diverticulum secondary to enterolith formation leading to generalized or localized peritonitis is extremely rare. Herein, we present a case ofperforated jejunal diverticulae due to enterolith in an 80-year-old female patient managed by small bowel resection and primary anastomosis.

Keywords: Jejunal Diverticulosis, Enterolith, Perforation
