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.
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.
