For the diagnosis of hemorrhagic small intestinal diseases, in the first examination, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and/or colonoscopy is usually performed before the examination of the small intestine. The endoscopic findings may give an important clue for diagnosing the diseases of the small intestine. In some of these diseases, the clinical features and carefully taken histories are often helpful for differential diagnosis. Furthermore, these hemorrhagic small intestinal diseases, which are generally classified into 3 groups(inflammatory, tumors, vascular malformations), have to some extent, common morphological features shown by the radiological and endoscopic studies of the small intestine in each group.

 In addition to the foregoing clinical aspects, it is important for the diagnosis of hemorrhagic small intestinal diseases to differentiate them bearing in mind the radiological and endoscopic features of the small intestine in each disease.
