Intussusception is telescoping of proximal segment of the intestine within the lumen of adjacent segment of intestine. In children, most of the intussusception is idiopathic, whereas in adults, it is always associated with pathological lead point. In adults, jejuno-jejunal intussusception is very rare compared to children. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult in most of the cases, so adequate negative margin is mandatory when a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is suspected as the cause of jejuno-jejunal intussusception. This case is reported because jejunal intussusception is one of the rare presentations of GIST.
