Author(s) :
Ravi Kadasne, MD
Presentation A 2-year-old child presents with acute pain in the abdomen. An abdominal ultrasound was performed.
Caption: Sagittal view at the site of pain
Description: A portion of the bowel [hypoechoic] and its mesentery [brightly echogenic] is seen telescoping into another segment of the bowel [delineated by arrows]. This gives a loop within a loop appearance.
Caption: Transverse image of the region of interest
Description: The donut sign typical of intussusception is seen in this image. This was in the region of the colon, so this most likely represents a colo-colic intussusception.
Caption: Transverse image of the concerned region
Description: The alternating hypo and hyperechoic layers of the bowel within the bowel loop are well appreciated in this image.
