Video capsule endoscopy is a new diagnostic modality that allows imaging of the entire small intestine. We report on a patient with a presumed but undocumented case of Crohn's disease who was found to have 9 ileal strictures by video capsule endoscopy. These strictures were undetected by small intestinal contrast studies and required surgical intervention. This case report suggests that small bowel radiographic studies may not be as sensitive for the detection of clinically significant luminal lesions as once thought.
