Physical examination showed moderate abdominal distention. Computed tomographic scans of his abdomen revealed an ileocecal intussusception (Panel A, arrow) with a pathologic mass, 2.5 cm in diameter, at the apex, also known as the lead point (Panel B, arrow). Diagnostic laparoscopy was performed, and the diagnosis of intussusception was confirmed.
Laparoscopically assisted ileocecal resection with primary anastomosis was performed. Gross inspection of the specimen showed a pedunculated lipoma within the terminal ileum. The patient had a rapid recovery, with complete resolution of his symptoms.
