Intestinal obstruction in adults due to intussusception is a rare entity and accounts for only 1% of all the causes. Jejunojejunal intussusception and in particular occurring proximally is rarely reported in the literature. Chronic and intermittent presentation of symptoms is a peculiar feature of adult intussusception. The nonspecific symptoms often lead to a late diagnosis. The clinical picture is confusing and poses a diagnostic challenge to the treating surgeon. We report a case of proximal jejunojejunal intussusception with an inflammatory polyp as a lead point in a young female.
