Abstract

Colonic lipomas are uncommon and usually asymptomatic tumors. A 30-year-old woman with abdominal pain lasting 10 days was admitted to the surgical clinic. Her physical examination revealed sensitivity on the right upper quadrant and her bowel sounds were normal. A lesion and invagination findings in the colon were found in the ultrasound examination and CT was performed. CT scan revealed a lipoma and invagination in the colon and the patient has undergone surgery. Pathological diagnosis of the lesion was reported as submucosallipoma. In this case report, we present clinical and radiological findings of a submucosal colonic lipoma causing intussusception.
