Abstract

A 70-year-old male presented with epigastric pain, vomiting and upper gastrointestinal bleeding 11 years after a subtotal gastrectomy. Retrograde jejunogastric intussusception was diagnosed by endoscopy and barium meal study and finally confirmed by laparotomy. After reduction of the intussusception, a small polyp was found at 20 cm distal to the anastoma, which served as the leading point of intussusception. The pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of this disease were reviewed.
