This article illustrates a computed tomography image. In the given case, a 50 year old man was admitted to the emergency room suffering from right upper quadrant pain and vomiting for two days. He had a history of diarrhoea and 10 kg weight loss in the past two months. Abdominal ultrasound was performed and air images were seen peripherally in the hepatic parenchyma.

    Intussusception is a relatively common cause of intestinal obstruction in children but a rare clinical entity in adults, representing fewer than 1% of intestinal obstructions in this patient population. We present a rare case of a 44-year-old female patient with intestinal obstruction due to...
