Conventional FDCS presenting as a colocolic
intussusception is an unusual presentation, and to our knowledge, has never been reported previously.
Intussusceptions are classified along with their locations into four categories: enteroenteric, colocolic
, ileocolic, and ileocecal (4).
Another major classification is by anatomical location, such as enteroenteric, ileocolic, ileocecal, or colocolic
Laparotomy revealed that the cecum had moved across the abdomen and was invaginated into the distal transverse colon, resulting in colocolic
The abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography scan revealed a left-sided colocolic
intussusception with a polyp as a lead point (Figure 1).
Proven cases of colocolic
intussusception were excluded from this study, as these are traditionally thought to occur secondary to a pathological lead point, mandating resection in our unit.
4) Almost all cases of colocolic
intussusception occur with a lead-point such as polyp or tumoral mass, a review of English written literature showed only three cases without a lead-point.
and ileo-ileal intussusceptions are the other types.

The majority (90%) of intussusceptions are ileocolic, while the remaining 10% are of the ileoileal or colocolic
