Abstract

Isolated small bowel intussusception accounts for 10% of all pediatric intussusception. It is more common in children older than 2 years of age. Presentation usually is with vomiting and abdominal pain. Currant jelly stool and palpable mass are less frequent than typical intussusception. There are few reported cases of children with transient small bowel intussusception. We describe 3-year-old boy presented with intermittent cyclic crampy abdominal pain for 6 months was diagnosed as having recurrent transient small bowel intussusception by abdominal ultrasonography and small bowel series.
