Small bowel tumors are rare; most are single and located in the duodenum. When a patient presents with unreasonable abdominal pain and distension, with normal upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and colonoscopy, it is important to consider this disease. Here, we report a case of segmental and multiple adenocarcinoma of the small bowl presenting with unreasonable abdominal pain and distension in a 76-year-old woman, and provide a brief review on this subject. Our report highlights the fact that segmental and multiple small bowel tumors are very rare and the clinical characteristics are generally vague and nonspecific.
