Özet

Adult intussusception, which is a rare condition, generally requires surgical treatment. A 25-year-old-male with abdominal pain was diagnosed as ileal intussusception with computerized tomography. The patient underwent diagnostic laparoscopy, laparoscopic small bowel resection and anastomosis. The pathologic evaluation revealed heterotopic gastric mucosa. Heterotopic gastric mucosa is rarely seen in ileum and is difficult to diagnose preoperatively. Excision is the choice of treatment. Laparoscopic treatment can be preferred in adult intussusception even in urgent cases.
