The article discusses the diagnosis of a patient found with a duodenal mass intussuscepting into the jejunum causing obstruction demonstrated by a computed tomography scan. The patient underwent a surgery and pathology revealed a malignant change in a villous adenoma despite the strong familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) family history of the patient. Duodenal cancer is the main cause of cancer related death in patients with FAP who undergone colectomy.
