Intussusception is the invagination of one portion of bowel into the lumen of the immediately adjoining bowel. The most common form is the result of an origin in terminal ileum or the ileo-caecal valve resulting in an ileocolic intussusception.

In the absence of treatment this condition is usually fatal.
