Intussusception of the duodenum is a relatively rare event and usually results from the presence of a benign tumor. Duodenojejunal intussusception secondary to duodenal tumors is an uncommon entity. The classic coiled-spring appearance, fairly visible in the jejunum, is not apparent in the duodenum due to its fixed position. We present a case of duodenojejunal intussusception secondary to tubulovillous adenoma in a 37-year-old female. Surgical excision of the polypoidal mass and duodenojejunal intussusception was performed. Pathological examination found the mass to be a tubulovillous adenoma.
