Enteroenteric intussusception secondary to a lipoma: CT diagnosis.

Author information

  • 1Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Sapir Medical Center, Kfar Saba, Israel.


We present a young woman who was hospitalized for abdominal pain and vomiting. Abdominal CT revealed diagnostic features of ileoileal intussusception with a central hypodense lesion of fat density suggestive of a lipoma as the lead point. This diagnosis was confirmed at surgery, where a small bowel resection was performed and a benign lipoma of the ileum was found.
