Core tip: I have reported this case of ileoileal intussusception in an adult due to duplication of alimentary tract (DAT) being the cause of intussusception. Although intussusception is a well-known surgical condition, the presence of DAT as a leading point is extremely rare. Only few cases have been reported in the English literature. Computed tomography, although identified the intussusception, the exploratory laparotomy established the DAT as a leading point for the ileoileal intussusception. Resection of the enteric cyst along with the affected intestine, and end to end anastomosis was performed. The histopathology was consistent with enteric duplication cyst.
