 Enteroliths (faecalith) are not uncommonly seen in inflammatory bowel disease especially Crohn’s disease. Small bowel obstruction secondary to enterolith in Crohn’s disease is extremely rare. We describe a case of small bowel obstruction secondary to enterolith formation which was successfully managed surgically. We also review the relevant literature.
