A CASE OF INTUSSUSCEPTION SECONDARY TO PARASITE INFECTION RARELY SHOWN BY ULTRASOUND

AHMET ORHAN ÇELİK, SAMET ÖZER.

Abstract
Intussusception is the leading cause of abdominal surgery in the first years of life. Many factors have been identified as part of the disease process; however, in some cases, the cause cannot be determined. Its incidence is increasing, especially within the first two years of life, and can be seen in children more than two years of age and even in adults. For adults and those in late childhood, it should be kept in mind that the underlying lesion could be malignant. Treatment is performed according to the duration of complaints, the length and location of the invaginated segment, and the consideration of other clinical data.

Key words: intussusception, parasite, ultrasonography
