edges for the Intussusception. CT scanning proved to be the most useful diagnostic radiologic method. The diagnosis and treatment of adult intussusception are surgical. It presents with a variety of acute, intermittent, and chronic symptoms, thus making its preoperative diagnosis diffucult. These patients admitted to medical clinic for incomplet obstruction.
