Abstract: Jejunoileal fistula is an extremely rare complication in patients with intestinal lymphoma. Here, we report a Japanese male patient with enteropathy-type intestinal T-cell lymphoma presenting abdominal pain and weight loss. A jejunoileal fistula was discovered during colonoscopy and pathological diagnosis was performed preoperatively by forceps biopsy. After elective surgery for partial resections of jejunum, ileum, and sigmoid colon, eight cycles of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone chemotherapy led complete remission of the disease.
