Burkitt’s lymphoma is an uncommon cause of intussusception. Intussusception rarely occurs after the first 6 years of life. Etiology of childhood intussusception differs depending on age at presentation. Here we present an interesting case of a 7-year-old male child who presented with pain in abdomen and constipation since 15 days with distension of abdomen since 2 days. X-ray abdomen revealed multiple air fluid levels suggestive of intestinal obstruction. On Ultrasonography and CT scan abdomen, diagnosis of ileo-colic intussusceptions was made. Patient was posted for laparotomy and resection and anastomosis of the involved segment was done. Histopathological examination revealed features suggestive of Burkitt’s lymphoma. Post operatively patient was given chemotherapy. Patient was followed up post operatively and post chemotherapy for six months and has no complaints at present.
