(searched for: Bowel Lymphoma Causing Multiple Intussusceptions In Adult- Case Report and Review of Literature)
Archives of Clinical and Medical Case Reports, Volume 4, pp 707-711; doi:10.26502/acmcr.96550254
Intussusception in adults is rarer than children and treatment in most cases in adults is surgical. Multiple Intussusceptions in our case with subacute intestinal obstruction and presence of abdominal lymphadenopathy with diffuse bowel wall thickening warrants non-surgical treatment. Presence of multiple intussusceptions is rare findings. We present a case of female aged 35 years presented with palpable abdominal lump associated with loss of weight and appetite. CECT abdomen showed abdominal lymphadenopathy and multisegmental small bowel thickening maximum upto 1.5 cm. Some segments of bowel also show aneurysmal dilatation associated with asymmetrical mural thickening. Telescoping of proximal bowel segment into adjacent distal bowel is seen in at least two places in ascending colon region (colocolic intussusceptions) and another in ileal loops (ileo-ileal). FNAC from the lymph nodes revealed non hodgkins lymphoma.

There are several types of small bowel pathology that can lead to small bowel obstruction or intussusception. The etiology causing small bowel obstruction varies by age. Benign disease is the typical cause in children and adolescents while malignant or adhesive disease is far more common in older patients. Although cases of adult intussusception caused by benign processes are rare, there are reports of inflammatory fibroid polyps causing adult intussusception of the terminal ileum published in the literature. We present the case of a 70-year-old man with a multiple year history of intermittent episodes of bowel obstruction who was found to have a giant ileal inflammatory fibroid polyp causing intermittent small bowel obstruction. The patient underwent operative intervention and has now been symptom-free for three years. Small bowel lesions include both malignant and benign etiologies. The malignant etiologies include adenocarcinoma, carcinoid or lymphoma while benign lesions are typically lipomas, inflammatory polyps or adenomas. Inflammatory fibroid polyps are rare, benign lesions that can occur anywhere within the gastrointestinal tract. They are typically an incidental finding, but on rare occasions have been presented as the source of intussusception or obstruction.
