Abstract

The authors present a patient in whom colocolic intussusception occurred as a result of bowel wall ischemia and hematoma. Imaging features and pathogenesis of bowel ischemia and intussusception will be briefly discussed, as well as its relationship to cocaine abuse. The importance of recognizing complications of cocaine abuse in today's emergency department patient population will be emphasized.
