A rare case of jejunogastric intussusception: A case report and review of the literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 Apr 9;82:105862. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Department of General Surgery, University of Saskatchewan, Canada. Electronic address:

Introduction: Jejunogastric intussusception following gastrectomy or gastric bypass surgery is a rare complication that, if not identified early, can have catastrophic outcomes.

Presentation Of Case: In this case, a 59-year-old male with a previous Billroth II gastrojejunostomy presented with intussusception of the efferent loop of jejunum through his previous repair.

Discussion: As there has only been approximately 300 reported cases of this complication, it often does not rank high as a differential diagnosis. Read More

Paediatric small-bowel intussusception on ultrasound - a case report with differentiating features from the ileocolic subtype.

J Ultrason 2021 8;21(84):70-73. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Department of Surgery, Military Hospital Mathura, India.

Intussusception is a common paediatric emergency which can be diagnosed with relative certainty by ultrasonography in trained hands. Both the ileocolic and small-bowel intussusception have overlapping clinical features and imaging findings on ultrasound. The aim is to differentiate between both subtypes based on selective differentiating features which should always be looked for while performing an ultrasound examination in suspected cases.

Severe jejunitis masquerading as intussusception in a case of Henoch-Schönlein purpura.

S Afr J Surg 2021 Mar;59(1):28d-28e

Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, Max Superspeciality Hospital, India.

Summary: Intussusception is a well-known complication of Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP).1 Diagnosis of intussusception is based on well-defined clinical and radiological features, but certain conditions can mimic intussusception, both clinically and radiologically, so closely as to result in unnecessary invasive procedures. Authors here present a case of HSP complicated by severe acute jejunitis, masquerading as jejuno-jejunal intussusception on ultrasound. Read More

Laparoscopic Resection of an Acute Rectosigmoid Intussusception Due to a Giant Pedunculated Lipoma.

Cureus 2021 Mar 10;13(3):e13798. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, AUS.

Intussusception is the invagination and telescopic migration of a proximal segment of the gastrointestinal tract distally and is classically described in the paediatric age group, accounting for 95% of reported cases. Intussusception in adults is highly uncommon; its aetiology involves a wide spectrum of pathologies, namely, concerning malignancy and differing management pathways. In the management of adult intussusception, consideration must be given to the potential malignant nature of the lesion, as reducing a malignant segment could render dissemination. Read More
