A 50-year-old male, with no personal history of interest, reported having self-limiting episodes of colicky abdominal pain during the past year. Abdominal ultrasound and CT scan showed a donut-shaped image compatible with ileo-ileal intussusception with a longitudinal diameter of 5cm and an inner image of fatty density, compatible with lipoma (Fig. 1). During surgery, an intussusception was found 50cm from the ileo-ileal valve. A segmental intestinal resection was performed. When the surgical specimen was opened, a lipoma was observed in the end of an invaginated Meckel's diverticulum, which at the same time was the head of the intestinal intussusception (Fig. 2). The pathology study confirmed Meckel's diverticulum and a submucosal-intramural lipoma. We also discovered a neuroendocrine G1 tumor under the lipoma.
