Abstract

A Very Rare Cause of Bowel Obstruction in Children: Colocolonic Intussusception

Baykara AS*

Intussusception is a serious condition in which part of the intestine slides into an adjacent part of the intestine. This "telescoping" often blocks food or fluid from passing through. Intussusception also cuts off the blood supply to the part of the intestine that's affected, which can lead to a tear in the bowel (perforation), infection and death of bowel tissue. Intussusception is the most common cause of intestinal obstruction in children younger than 3. The cause of most cases of intussusception in children is unknown. The most common type is idiopathic ileocolic intussusception. Colocolonic intussusception is an uncommon cause of intestinal obstruction in children. We present a delayed case of colocolonic intussusception which caused colonic obstruction in a 3-year-old girl.
