Abstract

Appendiceal intussusception is a rare entity that primarily affects children. The optimal surgical management is not known. We describe a child with appendiceal intussusception treated by simple appendectomy who suffered recurrent intussusception of the cecum at the base of the appendiceal stump. He was cured by resection of a rim of cecum around the appendiceal staple line. Partial cecectomy with appendectomy may be the most effective operation for appendiceal intussusception.
