The Von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis is a hereditary disease that in 20-60% of cases shows a gastrointestinal localisation. A clinical case is described, of a patient with enterorrhagia and hemorrhagic shock, submitted to intestine resection due to bleeding cancer of the first jejunum ansa. The gastrointestinal bleeding of unknown origin, (when the esophagogastroduodenoscopy and pancolonscopy have been not conclusive) require a considerable diagnostic commitment: arteriography, scintigraphy with marked erythrocytes, and preoperative enteroscopy. Surgical resection is the elective treatment.
