Small bowel intussusception with pelvic plastron secondary to acute appendicitis in child.

Abstract

We report an unusual case of a 3-year-old child with appendicitis complicated by ileoileal intussusception. Although acute complicated appendicitis and concurrent ileoileal intussusception represent a possible cause of an acute abdomen, very few cases have been reported in the literature.
