Article abstract: Intussusception is the most commen cause of intestinal obstruction in the young child less than 2 years old. The cause of intussusception is not clear between the ages of 6 and 24 months of age, although one hypothesis suggests that hypertrophy of the Peyer’s patches in the terminal ileum from an antecedent viral infection acts as a lead point. Peristaltic action of the intestine then causes the bowel distal to the lead point to invaginate into itself. In children, we can reduce the bowel with air or contrast enema. Intussusception is rare in adult and mostly due to tumural leading poit that surgery is required.
