Small bowel intussusception in infancy owing to a pathologic lead point is a rare event requiring immediate surgical attention. We report a case of a 7-month-old patient presenting with ileoileal intussusception with isolated heterotopic pancreas as the lead point. We review the literature of small bowel intussusception focusing on diagnosis and treatment. In contrast to comparable previous reports of infants with heterotopic pancreas and intussusception, the diagnosis was based solely on ultrasound findings followed by operative management using a laparoscopically assisted surgical approach.
