We report a 4-month-old female infant who was apparently well before the onset of vomiting, abdominal distension, and the passage of red currant jelly stools. A clinical diagnosis of intussusception was made, and the infant was prepared for a laparotomy. Intraoperative findings were a gangrenous ileocolic intussusception with a proximal atretic ileal segment (similar to a type IIIa ileal atresia). An extended right hemicolectomy including the atretic ileal segment was done with an ileotransverse anastomosis to establish bowel continuity. The patient had a wound dehiscence on the fourth postoperative day that was repaired. She subsequently made satisfactory clinical recovery and was discharged on the 10th day.
