Abstract:

Background: Intussusception is a serious condition in which part of the intestine slides into an adjacent part of the intestine. It is rare in adults, and symptoms of the disorder often overlap with the symptoms of other disorders; it is more challenging to identify.

Case Presentation: A 55-year-old female patient was admitted with complaints of colicky abdominal pain and loose stools mixed with blood. The erect abdominal X-rays revealed dilated large bowel distension. A digital rectal examination revealed red currant jelly stools, and the anal canal was found to be ballooned. Colo-colic anastomosis surgery was performed. The histopathological examination of the resected specimen diagnosed it to be mucinous adenocarcinoma of the colon.

Conclusion: Colo-colonic intussusception is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction in adults.
