Three adult patients were presented with sudden onset of intestinal signs. An intestinal intussusception was diagnosed in all three cases by ultrasound and exploratory celiotomy. Three different benign intraluminal tumours were the eliciting cause of intussusception. The tumours had equal macroscopic appearance consisting of a stalk attached to the intestinal wall with the bulk of the tumour floating in the chyme. Enterectomy without enteroplication of the concerned intestinal part cured the animals.
