Colorectal intussusception due to adenocarcinoma presenting as acute bowel obstruction in an adult

Abstract

Colorectal intussusception is a rare entity in adults presenting an acute abdomen. The authors present a case of a 73-year-old female who presented with an acute large bowel obstruction. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan reveals a colorectal intussusception with a colonic distension upstream. Laparoscopy founds out a stenotic tumor on colorectal junction corresponding with an adenocarcinoma on histopathological exam. CT scan is the most specific diagnostic test for intussusception and is superior to ultrasonography and endoscopy and thus should be performed preferentially.
