Abdominal pain is common in individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF). We report on a 17-year old boy with CF and two recognized intussusceptions: the first colonic intussusception was presumed due to distal intestinal obstruction syndrome, and the second enteric one due to polypoid lesions containing heterotopic gastric mucosa. The presentation, pathology, management, and a literature review of intussusception in CF are discussed.
