ABSTRACT
We present an unusual case of colonic lipoma causing acute large-bowel obstruction. It is unusual as the patient did not have preceding gastro-intestinal symptoms of intussusception and presented on the first occasion with acute large obstruction. This is surprising as the lipoma measured 10cm and is the largest colonic lipoma reported to date. Although acute intussusception and acute large-bowel obstruction due to a colonic lipoma is rare, it still needs to be considered in the initial differential diagnosis in large bowel obstruction.
