Resumen

BEJERANO GARCIA, Ramiro Julio. Intestinal invagination in an adolescent. MEDISAN [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.1. ISSN 1029-3019.

The clinical case of a 17 year-old patient that made a visit with symptoms of acute appendicitis is presented, confirmed by diagnostic means; however, during the operation, an ileus-ileal invagination with irreversible vascular damage that needed an enterectomy of the affected segment was found, as well as an end-to-end enteroanastomosis. The patient had a satisfactory clinical course and was discharged 6 days later. Clinical and surgical aspects of practical interest were reviewed, for the better diagnosis and treatment of this uncommon cause of acute abdomen in the adult.

Palabras clave : surgery; intestinal invagination; acute appendicitis; diagnostic means; vascular damage; enterectomy; end-to-end enteroanastomosis.
