Duodenal intussusception

Conclusions

1. True duodenal intussusception does occur but is a rare lesion.

2. It is usually secondary to a benign tumor of the duodenum.

3. It may occur in males or females and from twenty-one to seventy-five years.

4. Vomiting, emaciation, anemia, evanescent epigastric mass, and X-ray evidence of dilatation of the duodenum are the usual findings.

5. Surgical treatment should be successful if complications are not encountered.
