Intussusception of the appendix is a rare condition. We present the case of a 72–year–old woman with multiple polyps in the colon with an appendix completely intussuscepted into a polyp within the caecum. The clinical features, preoperative diagnosis, classification and treatment of this condition are discussed with reference to literature
