A rare case of ileocolic intussusception in an adult male patient with multiple lymphomatous polyposis of the gastrointestinal tract is presented. The patient, a 57-year-old man, complained of a right upper abdominal pain, diarrhea and abdominal mass. Right hemicolectomy revealed ileocolic intussusception with multiple polypoid masses confined to the ileum. This indolent case of multiple lymphomatous polyposis contradict those of other reports which have shown a rapidly fatal prognosis.
