Adult intussusception is a rare clinical condition. There is generally an etiological factor, mainly malignancy. However, the number of idiopathic cases is very low. Patients may present with obstruction or acute abdomen, but the symptoms and signs may also be nonspecific. The diagnostic process is more difficult in patients with non-specific clinical presentation. In this article, the diagnosis and treatment options of an adult idiopathic colo-colonic intussusception are discussed.
