Early this century, intussusception in childhood was usually fatal. John Hunter, one of the founding fathers of scientific surgery was amongst the first to accurately describe the clinico-pathological features of the condition and one of the great nineteenth century surgeons, Sir Frederick Treves, suggested a plan of management for intussusception which remains little changed up to the present day.
