The authors talk about a rare case of small bowel adenocarcinoma causing intussusception in a 45-years-old Indian man who had presented with features of intestinal obstruction. Small intestinal malignancies are rare and those presenting as multiple intussusceptions are exceptional. It is rarely diagnosed pre-operatively. It poses a great diagnostic challenge. Hence, often it presents as a surprise intra-operative diagnosis. Exploratory laparotomy represents the diagnostic and definitive therapeutic procedure.
