Core Tip Gastrointestinal complications are common in patients with acute leukemia, but intussusception is rarely reported in adult leukemia patients. Previous reports have mainly been in children with leukemia. We report a case of intussusception in an adult after chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia (AML). A 29-year-old woman with AML presented with fever, vomiting and right lower quadrant pain. Abdominal computed tomography showed features of intussusception. Resection of the involved bowel was performed and the patient recovered from the operation. A high index of clinical suspicion is important for early diagnosis.
