Gastrojejunocolic fistula is an unusual finding in patients with colon neoplams because long evolution time is required for its appearance. The methods of diagnosis have been and continue under discussion, being the barium enema the most accepted nowadays.
Gastrocolic fistula is characterized by a declining incidence due to the new methods of diagnosis. An early detection of the tumour is completely necessary to prevent complications like fistulas or malnutrition.
We present a case report of gastrojejunocolic fistula in a 49 year-old patient with colon carcinoma.
