Abstract


Jejuno-jejunal intussusception is a rare occurrence in the context of a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). We present the case of an elderly female with recurrent episodes of small bowel obstruction and anemia due to blood loss caused by jejunal GIST with jejuno-jejunal intussusception.
