This paper describes two cases of hepatic-portal venous gas and pneumatosis intestinalis, definitively diagnosed on CT, associated with open placed jejunostomy tubes in patients who appeared clinically ill but had no evidence of bowel ischemia at surgery. The hepatic-portal venous gas and pneumatosis resolved after surgical removal of the jejunostomy tube, decompression of the bowel, and administration of both bowel prokinetic agents and antibiotics.
