Abstract
Melanosis means the accumulation of brown or black pigment in an organ. Melanosis can be observed in virtually all parts of the gastrointestinal tract. However, it most frequently affects the colon. It is said that melanosis in small intestine is very rare, and no case has been reported in which melanosis was simultaneously noted in duodenum and ileum without involving the colonic mucosa. Here we report a case of melanosis duodeni and melanosis ilei which were found simultaneously in a 56-year-old female patient with chronic renal failure and heart failure who had been taking oral ferrous sulfate for 3 years.
