Adult intussusception is rare in comparison to paediatric age groups. The cause of Colo Colic Intussusception would be unknown. In this case report presentation, we discussed a 68-year-old female patient who was hospitalized with complaints of pain in the abdomen, anemia, dehydration, and weight loss. Intraoperatively, colo colic intussusception at ascending colon was observed and the tumor was palpable at the same site. This case illustrates the need to understand the underlying lead point as the cause of adult intussusceptions.
