A case of acute large bowel obstruction by colo-colonic intussusception in a healthy 19-year-old man is presented. The lead point of the intussusception is a rare solitary colonic Peutz-Jeghers polyp in the descending colon of a man without the full Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. The clinical presentation, imaging findings on plain radiographs, single contrast enema and CT, and findings at colonoscopy and surgery are correlated with pathology results and a brief review of the literature.
