Abstract

  Intussusception in adults especially sigmoido-rectal intussusceptions is extremely uncommon. In this report we have described a case of sigmoido-rectal intussusception in an elderly gentleman presenting as prolapsed gangrenous bowel who underwent laparotomy and resection anastomosis and made an uneventful recovery. Adult intussusceptions are generally associated with a pathological entity predominantly malignant. Insidious presentation with vague abdominal pain is the usual presentation and emergency presentation as seen in our case with gangrenous prolapsing bowel in the absence of a predisposing etiology is extremely uncommon. While adult intussusception usually requires operative intervention controversy exists with respect to attempted reduction prior to resection.
