Abstract

Colonic lipoma is a benign neoplasm that can lead to colonic obstruction but concomitant intussusception is rare in adults. In this case, colocolic intussusception due to a lipoma in descending colon occured. This was diagnosed using laparatomy, and any intervention to reduce it failed. So resection of the colon with mass and anastomosis were performed. After the surgery and 3 years of follow up, no complications were observed. We present this case, and briefly review the literature of colonic intussusception in adults.
