[Ileo-ileal and ileocecal invagination due to intestinal lipomatosis].
Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2003 Oct; 26(8):482-4.GH

Abstract

Intestinal lipomatosis is a rare entity and few cases have been reported in the literature. The condition is usually asymptomatic. Symptomatic cases usually present as obstruction or, less frequently, as bleeding. Intestinal barium studies, ultrasonography and computed tomography are useful diagnostic techniques. We present the case of a 47-year-old man with no relevant medical history who presented with intestinal obstruction of several months' duration. Complementary investigations yielded a diagnosis of intestinal obstruction due to ileocecal invagination secondary to endoluminal tumors of the ileum. Surgery and pathological analysis revealed the latter to be intestinal lipomatosis. This rare clinical entity has been associated with diverticulosis and intestinal volvulus.
