Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A woman in her early 50s presented with a 2-week history of gradually worsening colicky abdominal pain with associated vomiting, loose stools and reduced appetite. There was no malaena or perrectal bleeding. On examination, there was tenderness in the epigastric region with an associated palpable fullness. Subsequent imaging revealed a substantial colo-colic intussusception with the lead point being a lipoma of the ascending colon. Subsequent colonic resection was undertaken with histology confirming a lipomatous polyp.
