One case of chronic intussusception (ileo-ileo colic) is reported. A seven and a half year old male had presented with colicky abdominal pain, vomiting, a palpable abdominal mass, infrequent passage of mucus or blood with stools and weight loss over a period of six weeks. There was delay in diagnosis due to unusual presentation and a low index of suspicion. The patient had been admitted to a peripheral general hospital for four weeks where he was treated for amoebic dysentery without improvement, before his transfer to our hospital where the diagnostic problem continued, until the paediatric surgical unit was called in.
