AbstractIntussusception is a relatively common pediatric gastrointestinal emergency, although the etiology in most cases remains unknown. In a small number of cases the lead point is a tumor or tumor-like lesion of the small bowel. We report an unusual case of a myoepithelial hamartoma of the ileum causing an intussusception in a 4-month-old boy. This is the second such report in the literature.
