Özet

Myxomas are slowly growing mesenchymal tumors and are considered as extremely rare benign tumors of small intestine. This is the case of a young woman presenting with acute bowel obstruction due to ileo-ileal intussusception caused by an intraluminal 4- cm solitary nodule, found to be a myxoma upon pathologic examination, after resection by surgery.
