dc.description.abstract Blunt abdominal trauma is a rare cause of small bowel intussusception in adults. A patient is described who presented with signs and symptoms of intestinal obstruction following a fall from a ladder. A CT scan revealed evidence of ileo-ileal intussusception. Exploratory laparotomy and resection of a necrotic bowel segment were performed. Rare occurrences like intussusception should be kept in mind in similar presentations with careful examination of the pathognomonic CT findings, as early detection and surgical intervention with manual reduction could preclude the need for small bowel resection and its untoward possible complications.
