Adult intussusceptions is a rare entity accounting for only 5% of all intussusceptions and causes approximately 1% of all adult intestinal obstructions. Intussusception is an uncommon cause of abdominal pain in adults and poses diagnostic challenges for emergency doctors, due to its varied presenting symptoms and time course. Diagnosis is thus often delayed and results in surgical intervention due to the development of bowel ischaemia. We report a rare case of ileo-ileal intussusception in adult presented with acute intestinal obstruction.
