ABSTRACT
We treated it patient with a complete invagination of the cecum that contained two large laminated calcified fecaliths. Colonofiberscopy showed it dimpling submucosal tumor that was palpated as it bony hard tumor at laparotomy. This finding suggested that the fecaliths caused intussusception of the cecum and that much an intussusception should be suspected when it bony hard, dimpling submucosal tumor is found in the cecum. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a invagination accompanied by calcified fecaliths without an appendical intussusception.
