PMID:  16341315     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Jejunogastric intussusception is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication of a previous gastrojejunal anastomosis. Although jejunogastric intussusception was first described in 1914, fewer than 200 cases have been reported in the English literature thus far. Awareness of this rare complication would help in early diagnosis and appropriate management. Described here is a case report of a patient who presented with hematemesis due to an acute jejunogastric intussusception associated with gangrene of the intussuscepted jejunum.
