[edit] Discussion

  • Transient nonobstructing intussusception without a lead point is known to occur in both adults and children and occurs more frequently than was previously reported.
  • Transient intussusception of the small bowel has been reported in adults with celiac disease and Crohn disease but is most frequently detected incidentally and is presumed to be innocuous.
  • Intussusception without a lead point is known to appear as a nonobstructing segment, usually smaller in diameter and shorter than an intussusception with a lead point.
