Intestinal intussusception in adults is a rare disease. Most of the cases of adult intussusception are secondary to a definable lesion, and so surgical treatment generally needed. Intussusception that occurs after colonoscopic polypectomy is apparently a rare malady. A 77-year old man undergoing colonoscopic polypectomy was diagnosed as having colonic intussusception at the hepatic flexure. As there was no clinical improvement with conservative treatment, he underwent segmental resection of the ascending and transverse colon. Pathologic examination revealed that the colonoscopic polypectomy site was a leading point of the intussusception. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2010;41:172-175)
