Two cases of colo-recto-anal intussusception are reported, both in old women and with a tumour at the apex of the intussusception. Primary resection of the sigmoid colon with terminal sigmoidostomy was successful in one case. Resection with anastomosis in the other case was followed by anastomotic leakage with peritonitis, requiring revisional closure of the rectum and terminal sigmoidostomy.
