ABSTRACT
The occurrence of intussusception in adults is rare, accounting for less than 5% of all cases of intussusceptions and almost 1-5% of bowel obstruction. The condition is found in less than 1 in 1300 abdominal operations and 1 in 100 patients operated for intestinal obstruction. The child to adult ratio is more than 20:1. We report a rare case of ileocolic intussusception in an adult secondary to ileal lipomas. CECT revealed jejuno-ileo intussusceptions. Later laparotomy with reduction of jejunoileal intussusception with resection and anastomosis of small intestine was performed. Pathological examination confirmed multiple submuosal lipomas with mild ischemic changes in the intestine.
