Intussusception is when a portion of the intestine slips out of its normal position and slides into the adjacent portion of the intestine. It can occur at any location in the GI tract. Intussusception usually occurs due to the inflammation caused by intestinal parasites, sudden dietary changes, infections, or tumors. Other causes include systemic illness or surgical procedures performed on the intestine. Due to enfolding the passageway becomes narrow to allow the flow of intestinal contents that results in complete or partial obstruction. Symptoms of intussusception include abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. Diagnosis is based on the physical examination, x-rays, and ultrasound of the abdomen. Treatment for intussusception is complicated. Due to recurrence of intussusception, the recommended treatment is a surgical repair to restore bowel health.
