    Abstract

    A case of recurrent acute retrograde jejunogastric intussusception is described in a 45-year-old man who five years previously had had an antecolic gastrojejunostomy.

    Two previous haematemases imply that this complication was recurrent and self reducing an unusual and fortuitous outcome.

    Awareness of the possibility of acute intussusception following gastroenterostomy or partial gastrectomy is stressed.
