Jejunojejunal intussusception secondary to leiomyoma.


A case of jejunojejunal intussusception in a 59 year old male secondary to a leiomyoma is reported. The patient presented with abdominal pain and vomiting. He was admitted with a diagnosis of gastroenteritis. Antegrade barium study showed a jejunojejunal intussusception with a soft tissue mass as the lead point. Computed tomography scan demonstrated the soft tissue mass to have properties suggestive of a leiomyoma. The diagnosis was confirmed on examination of the excised specimen.
