Summary

Neurogenic tumors of the small bowel are uncommon. In general, the roentgen manifestations of all submucosal tumors are similar. The present case presented with abdominal pain, pelvic mass, and intussusception. After several small-bowel studies multiple intraluminal and intramural filling defects due to neurofibromas were finally demonstrated.
