SUMMARY Jejunojejunal intussusception is a rare clinical entity and among several causing factors, lipomas seem to be the most common. The present case report describes this event in an adult patient with severe episodes of heamatohesia and colicky abdominal pain. The diagnosis of intussusception was made preoperatively with CT and upper gastrointestinal series, but none of these modalities could reveal its’ exact leading cause. Since the possibility of malignancy could not be ruled out, exploratory laparotomy was mandatory. At surgery the jejunojejunal intussusception was found to be secondary to an intraluminal lipoma and primary reanastomosis was performed in the presence of bowel ischemia. Key words: Lipoma, jejunojejunal, intussusception, bowel ischemia (EN)
