Colic Adenocarcinoma Revealed by Ileo-Colic Intussusception

Introduction: Intussusception is unusual in adults; it accounts for 5% of intestinal occlusions at this age. It is most often secondary to a benign or malignant organic lesion.

Result: Through this observation, we report a case of colic adenocarcinoma revealed by an ileo-colic intussusception in a 40-year-old patient.

Conclusion: Intussusception is rare in adults and its symptomatology is non-specific; this makes its clinical diagnosis difficult. Thus, imagery holds a prominent place in positive diagnosis.
