Primary jejunal ulcer is a very rare condition and differs in its clinical manifestations considerably from ulcers involving other parts of the gastrointestinal tract. Richardson1 collected 12 cases in 1922. In 1933 Ebeling2 made a survey of both domestic and foreign literature and presented a summary of the important findings in 47 collected cases and reported a case of his own. Since then Puhl,3 and Hall4 have each reported one case. Each case thoroughly studied, should add to its clinical entity.
E. B. R., a white male, 59 years of age, complained of pain in the lower abdomen.
