摘要：Intestinal lipomas are rare nonepithelial tumors that are typically small in size and detected incidentally. Colonic intussusception is an uncommon complication of colonic lipoma. A 56 y old woman visited our emergency room with sudden onset of intermittent abdominal cramps. A CT scan showed a 5.0 cm, nodular, homogenous, hypodense structure in the hepatic flexure of the colon as the lead point of an intussusception. The hypodense structure was suggestive of a colonic lipoma, and the tumor was suspected to be the cause of the intestinal intussusception. Laparoscopic exploration was performed, and the pathology demonstrated a mature submucosal colonic lipoma. In addition to the case report, we discuss the role of imaging modalities in diagnosing neoplasms and for assessing the clinical behavior of lipomas when symptomatic. © 2018, Scientific Publishers of India.
