Abstract

In adult invagination, the leading point is usually an organic lesion. It is mostly a benign lesion in enteric, ileocolic and ileocaecal invaginations, however in colocolic invaginations the leading point is often malign (1, 9). In our patient we diagnosed an ileocolic invagination due to a caecal tumour, evidenced by CT (Computerized tomography) and colonoscopy. Right hemicolectomy and ileotransversostomy were performed.
