Abstract

Peutz-Jeghers syndrome(PJS) is a relatively rare autosomal-dominant disease characterized by the occurrence of extensive mucocutaneous hyperpigmentation and gastrointestinal polyps. PJS patients are considered to have a high prevalence of intussusception due to polyps. We report the radiological findings in two cases of intussusception due to polyps in patients with PJS, and review the literature.
