Retrograde jejunogastric intussusception (JGI) is an unusual complication following gastrojejunostomy and Billroth II gastrectomy. It was first described in 1914 by Bozzi in a patient with gastrojejunostomy, and about 300 cases have been reported so far in the medical literature. High index clinical suspicion is required to make the diagnosis. Pyloroplasty is one of the well-accepted and proven surgical options in such cases. We report a case of retrograde JGI involving both loops of jejunum in a male patient who underwent truncal vagotomy and posterior gastrojejunostomy for chronic duodenal ulcer 6 years ago.
