Intussusception in adult is a rare entity that challenges the surgeon opening a wide range of issues in order to define the etiology and therapeutic strategy. Whether to resect or not the bowel is the main question. The answer can be given only after having seen the site of obstruction and the etiology. Colonic intussusception is best treated by resection. Also small bowel intussusception can require resection if a neoplasm is the cause. Peutz Jeghers can be one of these causes as is seen in the case we report.
