Intussusception in adults is a very rare entity that occurs in only 5% of all intestinal obstructions. Most often, in 66% of cases, intussusception is localized to the small intestine, while jejunogastric intussusception is very rare and occurs in 0,1%. Since the first case of jejunogastric intussusception after gastrojejunostomy was described by Bozzi in 1914, fewer than 200 isolated cases of postoperative intussusception after gastric surgery have been reported.
Here we present a case of anterograde jejunogastric intussusception, 15 years after radical subtotal gastrectomy with Billroth II anastomosis in a 71-year-old man.
