SUMMARY Benign tumours of the small intestine in children although rare, may represent an additional cause of acute abdomen symptoms that the gastroenterologist, the paediatrician and the surgeon must keep in mind in order to proceed to accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Three cases of benign tumours of the small intestine, histologically diagnosed as leiomyoma, fibroma and hamartoma., are presented, and the literature is revised emphasizing issues of pathophysiology, specific characteristics and the treatment of these tumours. Key words: Benign tumours, small intestine, acute abdomen, children. (EN)
