Abstract

KARTHIKEYAN, V. S. et al. Jejuno-jejunal intussusception secondary to small-bowel lipomatosis: A case report. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2012, vol.50, n.2, pp. 43-44. ISSN 2078-5151.

Intussusception is usually a disease of children aged between 6 months and 4 years, in which a part of a bowel telescopes into another part of the bowel. We report a case in a 60-year-old man who required resection and anastomosis. Although intussception is unusual in adults, awareness of the differences in symptoms and causes should be borne in mind when adults present with intestinal obstruction.
