We report a case of postoperative ileocecal invagination in a 63-year-old male. Forty-six days after esophageal resection and gastric tube reconstruction with cervical anastomosis for an esophageal carcinoma, the patient suffered from colicky pain in the right abdomen. The diagnostics showed an ileocecal invagination up to the right flexure of the colon. The invagination was based on a leiomyoma of the terminal ileum. Because of necrosis of the mucous membrane, an ileocecal resection with ileoascendostomy could not be avoided. We discuss this case on the basis of the existing literature.
