SUMMARY We report a rare case of a 30-year-old man, with Peutz- Jeghers syndrome who was admitted to our clinic with recurrent occlusion episodes of the small intestine and underwent operations three times due to intestinal intussusception. The enteroscopic visualization of multiple sessile and peduncular polyps throughout the small intestine was the reason why combined surgical and endoscopic treatment was decided on to the remove the hamartomatous polyps from the intestine. A review of the relevant literature is cited. (EN)
