BACKGROUND: Adult intussusception is an uncommon surgical presentation AIMS: We report a case of adult intussusception, review the literature and discuss the optimal management. METHODS: We describe a woman who presented with severe abdominal pain and a large supra-umbilical mass. Ileocolic intussception was confirmed on CT, and a laparotomy and en-bloc resection were carried out. Postoperatively she made an uneventful recovery. CONCLUSION: Adult intussusception is a rare clinical presentation. En-bloc resection should be the surgical treatment of choice in the majority of cases due to the high percentage of malignant lead points.
