Compound intussusception in the form of ileocolocolic intussusception is rare. Here we present a case of a 83 year old man who presented with abdominal pain, failed colonoscopic reduction and underwent laparotomy with resection and anastomosis. Postoperative course was uncomplicated. The final biopsy showed features of moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of ileum.
