Ileus caused by small intestinal obturation due to an enterolith, as a complication of jejunal diverticulosis, is rare, however, a number of case reviews describing the conditions can be found in literature. The presented case review documents difficulties with entherolith ileus diagnostics and its management together with a growing abdominal aneurysm, as a single step procedure.

Key words:
small intestinal diverticulosis – enterolith – aneurysm
