Multiple postoperative jejuno-jejunal intussusceptions- A case report

OD Osifo, E Igbinovia, RO Ogbomo

Abstract




Paediatric intussusceptions have been widely reported. Post operative intussusceptions are rare, more so after laparotomy for an ileo-colic intussusception. This is a report of multiple jejuno-jejunal intussusceptions seen in a 5 month-old male infant which occurred on the second day after laparotomy for an ileo-colic intussusception. He had a re-exploration and was discharged on eleventh day after admission.
