Intussusception is a relatively frequent cause of bowel obstruction in infancy (the first 2 years of life) but accounts for only 2% of bowel obstruction in the adult population. The median age of presentation in adults with intussusception is the sixth to seventh decade. The etiology of intussusception differs greatly between adult and pediatric patients. In the vast majority of adult intussusceptions, there is a demonstrable inflammatory lesion or a neoplasm that is malignant in almost 50% of patients. We report a rare case of jejuno-jejunal intussusception in a 6 year young female secondary to rare solitary peutz jeghers polyp. She was treated with wide surgical resection and anastomosis and she recovered fully.
