Abstract

Jejunogastric intussusception is a rare, but potentially lethal complication after gastrectomy or gastrojejunostomy. In the acute condition, early diagnosis and prompt surgical treatment are mandatory to reduce the incidence of mortality. We present here a case of jejunogastric intussusception that was diagnosed by gastroscopy in a patient with a history of subtotal gastrectomy, and she had experienced increasing epigastric pain and vomiting for 1 day.
