Adult intussusception secondary to inflammatory fibroid polyp: demonstration by MRI

Eur Radiol. 2000;10(11):1708-10. doi: 10.1007/s003300000508.

Abstract

Adult intussusception secondary to inflammatory polyp occurs rarely. Imaging of intussusception on ultrasound, CT and MRI has been previously described. In this report we describe a case of an adult intussusception secondary to inflammatory fibroid polyp. Both the lead point (inflammatory fibroid polyp) and intussusception were depicted on multiplanar MR images. Findings on MRI were confirmed at surgery and histopathological examination.
