Intussusception is a rare event in adults which constitutes 1–3% of all cases of intestinal obstruction. Malignant etiology as causes of intussusception is more common in large bowel accounting for 60–65% cases. Intussusception due to colonic lipoma is rare. The present case is a 45-year-old woman who had a polypoidal growth in the descending colon. She was operated and the growth was histopathologically diagnosed as lipoma. Though rare, colonic lipoma should be considered as a probable etiology for intussusceptions.
