Ravi Kadasne, MD
 
Presentation An 8-month-old male child presents with a mobile abdominal lump of 1 day duration. An abdominal ultrasound was performed.
 
 
 
Caption: Sagittal view in the region of the lump
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 was in the region of the colon, so most likely represents a colo-colic intussusception.
 
 
 
Caption: Transverse image of the region of interest
Description: The donut sign typical of intussusception is seen in this image with the echogenic center representing reflectors from the omentum and the surrounding less echogenic rings representing the bowel walls.
