Abstract

Intussusception in adults is generally a rare diagnosis and generally different from intussusception in children in terms of clinical presentation, etiology, and incidence (Begos et al., Am J Surg, 173:88-94, 1997; Watson and Bisset, Clin Radiol, 49:723-726, 1994; Felix et al., Am J Surg, 131:723-726, 1976). One third of these affect the large bowel. Adult intussusception shows clinically uncharacteristic symptoms of bowel obstruction; thus, the diagnosis is often clinically missed. We report the case of a 39-year-old woman suffering from long-term abdominal pain. This case report discusses the clinical advantages of multislice computed tomography for the diagnosis of adult intussusception and shows a comprehensive overview of the literature.
