Intussusception can occur anywhere in the small and large bowel. Adult intussusception accounts for 5% of all cases of intussusception and 1% to 5% of all cases of intestinal obstruction with ileocolic intussusception being the most common type in adults and there are few reported cases of jejunojejunal intussusception. Feeding Jejunostomy (FJ) is a simple surgical procedure for enteral nutrition, but it can develop complications that may require re-exploration and can be lifethreating. Common complications include mechanical ones such as tube migration or dislocation, infection, gastrointestinal symptoms, fluid and electrolyte imbalances. However, intussusception is a rare complication. Herein, we presented a patient with gastric cancer who had received subtotal gastrectomy with Billroth-II reconstruction and feeding jejunostomy, and then developed jejunojejunal intussusception following the placement of feeding tube into the jejunum.
