Abstract: We present two adult cases of intussusception caused by adenocarcinoma of the colon. These cases represent typical cases of adult intussusception, a rare disease characterized by insidious onset, vague abdominal symptoms, and elusive diagnosis. On physical examination, the masses were palpable in the right hypochondrium. Colonic intussusception were diagnosed by characteristic finding on ultrasonography (US) and computer tomography (CT). Endoscopic examination showed pedunculated tumors with central ulceration, in the cecum, which caused colonic intussusception, and endoscopic biopsies showed adenocarcinoma of the colon. US and CT are useful non-invasive diagnostic tools that allow early detection of intussusception. Colonoscopy is recommended for differential diagnosis and possibly a direct reduction of intussusception.
