Submucous lipoma of the ileocaecal valve presenting as caecal volvulus

, : Submucous lipoma of the ileocaecal valve presenting as caecal volvulus. International Journal of Clinical Practice 58(4): 424-425

Caecal volvulus is a well described but unusual condition. We report here, a case of caecal volvulus in a 53-year-old Caucasian woman associated with intussuscepted submucous lipoma of the ileocaecal region. The imaging and pathology are presented. Submucous lipoma of the ileocaecal region is uncommon but well described. It can be mistaken as carcinoma of the ascending colon on barium enema and on computed tomography scan. The combination with caecal volvulus is a rare occurrence.
