Jejuno-jejunal intussusception after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is an uncommon complication. Most practitioners consider dysmotility to be the causative mechanism in the absence of obvious etiology. The data in the literature reveals occurs between the first and the third year post-operatively. We present the case of a young patient, that presented with a retrograde intussusception, necessitating jejuno-jejunal resection, ten years after a laparoscopic RYGB. The diagnosis and etiological theories are discussed based on findings from literature.
