A Rare Cause of Jejunojejunal Intussusception in an Adult
- 98 Downloads
Jejunojejunal intussusceptions are not common in adults and unlike in children, a lead point is usually found. The clinical presentation in adults tends to be more chronic or intermittent and include abdominal pain, obstructive symptoms, gastrointestinal bleeding or palpable mass. These unspecific symptoms often lead to a late diagnosis. The clinical picture is subtle and diagnosis is therefore elusive. We report a case of jejunojejunal intussusception secondary to gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) in a 50 year old female.
