Core Tip We report a patient with pneumatosis intestinalis (PI) and obstructing intussusception who underwent urgent colectomy and review the literatures regarding PI with intussusception. A 20-year-old man presented at our hospital with abdominal pain, and has undergone steroid therapy for 4 years. Computed tomography revealed ascending colon intussusception with air within the wall, and colectomy was performed. Histological examination of colonic wall sections reve-aled large cysts in the submucosal layer. Nine cases of intussusception associated with primary PI have been reported. Although primary PI often represents a benign condition, if the case involves intussusception and obstruction, emergent laparotomy should be considered.
