USG findinds were suggestive of an ileo-colic intussesception!

An 18- month-old male child presented with abdominal pain and red-colored jelly-like stools and was brought in for an ultrasound examination.

Case Study Department of Radiology

Gray Scale Ultrasound images demonstrate telescoping of a long segment of terminal ileal loop (intussuceptum) into proximal colonic loop/ cecum (intussuscripiens), resulting in a "bowelwith bowel" configuration with a hyperechoic core giving a "classical target sign appearance". the adjacent mesentery appears echogenic and thickned; a few perilesional lymph nodes are also visit. minimal free fluid is noted.

The child underwent surgery and the results confirmed the diagnosis of ileo-colic intussusception as seen on ultrasound.
