Lipomas are an uncommon cause of small-bowel obstruction. The symptoms are intermittent and nonspecific. The Authors report a case in which intussusception was diagnosed with echography and the obstruction was treated with resection. They conclude that lipomas must always be considered in the differential diagnosis of intrabdominal neoplasms and in intestinal obstructions.
