Occult gastrointestinal bleeding frequently frustrates clinicians' attempts to locate the source. Foci of hemorrhage within the small bowel are often found only at laparotomy and can be attributed to Meckel's diverticula, carcinomas, or less frequently, pulsion-type diverticula. We report our experience with two patients whose jejunal diverticula resulted in recurrent episodes of massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage.
