Duodenoduodenal intussusception is a rare event which is usually caused by the presence of a tumor. We present a case of duodenoduodenal intussusception secondary to a large tubulovillous adenoma causing gastric outlet and biliary obstruction in a 50-year-old female. The imaging features on ultrasonography, CT, and MRI are described.
