Abstract

Jejunogastric intussusception (JGI) is a rare but potentially very serious complication of gastrectomy or gastrojejunostomy. To avoid mortality, early diagnosis and prompt surgical intervention is mandatory. The imaging findings are diagnostic, in which contrast studies and CT findings are very helpful. Endoscopy performed by someone familiar with this rare entity is certainly diagnostic. There is no medical treatment for Jejunogastric intussusception and surgical intervention is required for the definite treatment. In our case, 42yrs old male patient, who was known case of Sickle cell disease and with the past history of Gastrojejunostomy done 14yrs back for a chronic bleeding duodenal ulcer, presented with vomiting and vague abdominal pain.
