Intussusception is a relatively common cause of intestinal obstruction in children. However, it is quite uncommon in adults, representing ≤1% of intestinal obstructions in this patient population. Colonic lipoma is rare, usually small, and occurs mainly in the right colon, particularly in the cecum. They often occur in elderly women. Intermittent episodes of intussusception are not uncommon in patients with colonic lipoma but they are usually caused by larger pedunculated lipomas. Almost all gastrointestinal lipomas are submucosal or subserosal, and most are asymptomatic, even though they can cause abdominal pain, bowel obstruction, and gastrointestinal bleeding. Colonic lipoma with a dramatic presentation requiring urgent surgery is rare. Symptomatic lipomas or complicated cases require surgical or endoscopical intervention. We report a case of symptomatic giant pedunculated colonic lipoma causing intussusception requiring surgical intervention, with a successful recovery after surgery.
