 en Giant Solitary Ileal Polyp Presenting as an Intussusception in a 10-year-old Boy
Ghritlaharey, Rajendra Kumar


  This is a case report of a 10-year-old boy who presented with features of acute intestinal obstruction. Clinical examination revealed distended abdomen, visible bowel loops, and a lump in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. Clinically, the diagnosis of intussusception was suspected and confirmed on sonography examination. Exploration of the abdomen revealed ileo-colic intussusception. Manual reduction of intussusception was possible except the last part that had an intraluminal solitary polyp (3 × 4 cm) occupying the 3/4th of the lumen of the terminal ileum. Segmental resection of the ileum containing polyp was done, and the ileal continuity was restored with ileo-ileal anastomosis. His post-operative recovery was uneventful. Histologically, it was consistent with the inflammatory intestinal polyp without any evidence of malignancy.
