Ileo-cecal atresia secondary to intrauterine intussusception

Edin Husarić, Nešad Hotić, Amir Halilbašić, Elvira Konjić, Zinaida Karasalihović


Intestinal atresia usually occurs on the jejunum or ileum as a result of suspected mesenteric vascular occlusion. Atresia of the ileocecal segment is very rare and little is known about its origin. We report a very rare case of ileocecal atresia where pathological examination revealed intrauterine intussusception. Resection of the atretic dilated segment and end to oblique anastomosis was undertaken without valve reconstruction.
