A case report of pyloric intussusception secondary to helicobacter pylori hyperplastic polyps

Med J Malaysia. 2016 Feb;71(1):35-6.


We report a middle age man who presented with intermittent vomiting and loss of weight. Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy showed numerous antral hyperplastic polyps with inaccessible duodenum. Contrast enhanced computed topography demonstrated a classical target sign of intussusception. This finding was later confirmed at laparotomy. This rare presentation and management strategy is discussed.
