Ileoileal intussusception caused by ileal lymphangioma in an adult: A rare case report


Omer Topuz, Selim Sozen

We experienced a case of intussusception caused by ileal lymphangioma in a 26-year-old female who was referred to emergency service with acute abdominal pain. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed ileoileal intussusception. An emergent operation was performed. On histopathologic examination, cystically dilated spaces lined by endothelium and septated by fibrous septa were present. The pathological diagnosis was lymphangioma of the ileum. Although intussusceptions due to lymphangioma in an adult are rare, it should be kept in mind that it is a possible diagnosis.
