Abstract

Metastases of malignant neoplasms to small bowel occur very seldom. Intussusception due to neoplasmatic metastasis which primary lesion localized out of abdominal cavity is atypical symptom, too. This paper presents the case of 55-year-old male patient, who had intussusception ileo-ileum because of non-small cell lung cancer metastasis to small bowel.
