Transient intussusception

Dr Jeremy Jones et al.

Transient (non-obstructing) intussusception without a lead point is known to occur in both adults and children and occurs more frequently than was previously reported.

Transient intussusception of the small bowel has been reported in adults with coeliac disease and Crohn disease but is most frequently detected incidentally and is presumed to be innocuous.

Intussusception without a lead point is known to appear as a non-obstructing segment, usually smaller in diameter and shorter than an intussusception with a lead point.
