Inflammatory fibroid polyp presenting as ileocolic intussusception in adult

Abstract


Adult intussusception generally has a distinct pathological cause as a lead point. Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) is a rare non-neoplastic submucosal lesion, furthermore, that polyp causing ileocolic intussusception in an adult is even rarer. Here we present a case of a 32-year-old female who presented with complaints of intermittent colicky pain associated with vomiting for 3 days. Computer tomography (CT) showed bowel obstruction caused by an ileocolic intussusception. Laparotomy with ileo-transverse anastomosis was done. Histopathological and immunohistochemistry (IHC) revealed that the cause of the intussusception was a rare inflammatory fibroid polyp. A benign condition being the cause of intussusception in an adult and the clinical symptoms were nonspecific posing clinical challenges makes this interesting case worthy of reporting.
