Image from NEJM: Colocolonic Intussusception

From NEJM Twitter feed:

“Colonic intussusception is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction in children, and most cases are ileocolic rather than colocolonic. A pathologic lead point, typically a juvenile polyp, is present in the majority of cases.” In this case, panel D shows a 2.5 cm pedunculated polyp which was thought to be the lead point.
