Intussusception after Routine Colonoscopy: A Rare Complication

Michael X Min, Bradford Sklow, Byron P Vaughn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a 31-year-old woman who developed ascending colon intussusception several hours after a routine colonoscopy where random mucosal biopsies were obtained. She underwent an ileocolic resection, and pathology did not show an etiology for the intussusception. Colonic intussusception occuring without pathology and after minimal intervention is rare.
