Small bowel intussuspeption is an unusual pathology in the adult. Most commonly, it is secondary to intestinal wall organic disorders. A complete small bowel obstruction is the most frequent clinical presentation, which requires emergency surgery in many cases. The preoperative diagnosis is infrequent. The best treatment is surgical resection.
