Recurrent Intussusception Secondary to Multiple Peutz-jegher polyps: An Unusual Case with Review of Literature
Peutz-Jegher polyps are hamartomas of the small bowel which occur as part of the Peutz- Jegher syndrome, a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by gastrointestinal polyps and mucocutaneous melanotic pigmentation. Here we report the case of a young male suffering from this syndrome who presented with acute intestinal obstruction due to intussception. Exploratory laparotomy was done which revealed jejuno-jejunal and jejunoileal intussusceptions for which resection and anastomosis was done. There were multiple intraluminal polyps in the jejunum which on histopathological examination, showed features of Peutz-Jegher Polyp. Patient behaved well in the post-operative period and is still on follow up with us.
