A case of immunoproliferative small intestinal disease (IPSID) was diagnosed and treated at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Although this rare disease entity has been reported from different countries, there are paucity of information about IPSID from Indian subcontinent. Careful assessment of patient and supportive laboratory investigations are required for its diagnosis. The patient is passing a comparatively good smooth course after getting medications.
