[Intestinal intussusception as a key sign of Celiac Disease. A pediatric case report].
AbstractIntestinal intussusception is the most frequent cause of intestinal obstruction between 6 and 36 months of age, the majority being idiopathic. The association between celiac disease and intestinal intussusception in the pediatric population has been described. We present the case of a 23-month-old male admitted due to a failure to thrive. In his ultrasound study recurrent asymptomatic ileo-ileal invaginations were found.
