Twenty-five patients were diagnosed with enteric intussusception and 21 patients with colonic intussusception.

in adults in Africa was a relatively common condition and instead of being associated with a malignancy was usually associated with lymphadenopathy from various causes.
Neoplasms serving as the lead point of colonic intussusception are more commonly malignant, while those causing enteric intussusceptions
are usually benign.
