Abstract
Intussusception is a common cause of lower intestinal bleeding from five to 11 months of age. Typical symptoms are paroxysmal colicky pain, irritability, vomiting, abdominal mass and currant jelly stool, but hematemesis is rare. Though the most common type of intussusception is ileocecal type, it is rarely accompanied with hematemesis. Up until the present, hematemesis has been observed rarely but only in ileoileal type intussusuption for children and gastrojejunal or jejunojejunal type intussuception for adults who went through gastrectomy. We report a case of the ileocolic type intussusception associated with hematemesis in a 18 months old child.
Key Words: Intussusception, Hematemesis
