Abstract.

A case study of a patient who presented with abdominal pain and a palpable mesogastric mass is discussed. Ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) demonstrated that the palpable mass was jejunojejunal intussusception of the small intestine. The lead point of the intussusception was a lipoma that appeared in the CT scan as a small intramural mass with an attenuation coefficient of fat.

Key words: Adult intussusception—Intestinal lipoma—CT intussusception.
