We present a case of a 43-year-old man with small intestine adenocarcinoma. The patient was admitted to the hospital to expand diagnostics of anemia as evaluation that was done on an outpatient basis did not show its root cause. We performed video capsule endoscopy that showed multiple polypoid lesions in the jejunum. Double-balloon assisted enteroscopy was done to take tissue samples but revealed stricture in the proximal part of the jejunum due to proliferative lesion and because of threatening ileus patient required urgent surgical treatment. Histological examination of metastatic tumor located in greater omentum showed adenocarcinoma cells. Patient was referred to the oncologist for further systemic treatment.
