Although well described in the colon, enteritis cystica profunda is an extremely rare lesion of the small intestine with only a few cases documented in English medical literature. It is a benign condition most often associated with Crohn's disease or Peutz-Jeghers syndrome in the adult. It has been described presenting as ileoileal intussusception in the pediatric population. We report a case of enteritis cystica profunda found incidentally on exploratory laparotomy with evidence of interval development over a 5-month period confirming trauma as the etiology.
