Inflammatory fibroid polyp of jejunum causing jejuno-jejunal intussusception

Indian J Gastroenterol. Sep-Oct 2004;23(5):190-2.

Abstract

Intussusceptions originating in the jejunum are rare. We report a 20-year-old woman who had a chronic jejuno-jejunal intussusception due to an inflammatory fibroid polyp manifesting in the post-partum period as peritonitis. Resection-anastomosis of the intussuscepted segment was done. She is well one year later.
