Ileoileal intussusception in unspecific recurrent abdominal pain in adult: A case report


Uyulmaz, Sema; Zünd, Michael; Caspar, Uwe; Diebold, Joachim; Slankamenac, Ksenija (2018). Ileoileal intussusception in unspecific recurrent abdominal pain in adult: A case report. Sage Open Medical Case Reports, 6:2050313X18792814.

Abstract

Primary small bowel tumours are very uncommon accounting about 1% of all gastrointestinal tumours. Intestinal lipomas are a rare entity of benign tumours with an incidence at autopsy ranging from 0.04% to 4.5%, most being asymptomatic. Complications such as obstruction, haemorrhage, intussusception and perforation might demand invasive management. Among these, intussusception is the most rare complication of intestinal lipomas. Here, we present a case of intussusception in a 52-year-old female with a large intramural lipoma of the ileum.
