Duodenojejunal intussusception

Case contributed by Dr Mohammad Taghi Niknejad


Abdominal pain.

Patient Data

Age: 50 years
Gender: Female

Long segment intussusception is noted at the distal duodenum and proximal portion of jejunum causing partial obstruction with subsequent proximal dilated duodenum.
A 10 mm simple cortical cyst is noted at right kidney. 
The uterus contains a few small fibroids.

Case Discussion

Intussusception can occur essentially anywhere. In adults, no pattern of distribution is present as such as in the vast majority of cases a lead point lesion is present, and thus the location will depend on the location of that lesion.

This patient underwent reduction surgery and a small (pathology proven) GIST detected as lead point.
