Abstract

A 65-year-old man was admitted with a history of blood stools. He presented with sudden onset of massive hemorrhage and developed shock. Gastroduodenoscopy, colonoscopy and angiography revealed no obvious bleeding points. For recurrent bleeding he was taken to surgery. Endoscopical examination in operation revealed changes characteristic of Crohn's disease from jejunum to ileum, 50cm proximal to the ileocecal valve, and then this portion was resected. Glutamine-enriched enterai nutrition led him to early weaning from total parenteral nutrition. Massive hemorrhage in Crohn's disease is rare. Those patients generally received operation and consequently develop short-bowel syndrome. As our experience, glutamine is one of the effective materials which can promote remnant intestinal adaptation in short bowel patients.
