Transient non-obstructing intussusception is known to occur in adults. While the CT findings in small bowel intussusception have been described in detail, few reports concerning transient cases have been published. We evaluated five patients with non-obstructive jejuno-jejunal invagination. All CT studies showed a target pattern with an intraluminal soft tissue mass, an eccentric mesentery, and a slightly dilated intussuscipiens. Transient intussusception has typical CT features and should be distinguished from more severe forms requiring prompt surgical treatment.
