Primary carcinoma of the jejunum is of exceedingly rare occurrence. From the case reports of various European and American clinics, the incidence of primary carcinoma of the jejunum varies from 0.3 per cent to 1.0 per cent of all carcinomata involving the gastrointestinal tract from the cardiac end of the stomach to and including the rectum. Carter,1 reviewing the literature up to 1935, found less than 100 cases reported of primary carcinoma of the jejunum discovered at operation, although a considerably larger number of necropsy cases had been reported.
