Small bowel obstruction in a pediatric patient following liver transplant often results from adhesions, hernias, or post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease. Here, we present an unusual and previously unreported entity – Roux-en-Y intussusception in an eight-yr-old female several years after liver transplantation. Although a rare complication, Roux-en-Y intussusception should be considered as a potential etiology in the patient presenting with bowel obstruction, with specific attention to acute presentation accompanying jaundice.
