Abstract

Intussusception is a common cause of intestinal obstruction in infants. Use of a barium enema affords both diagnostic confirmation and a chance for nonsurgical reduction of the intussusception. While failed hydrostatic reduction is an indication for surgical intervention, delayed complications of hydrostatic reduction have not been described. We present a case of ischemic stricture and perforation developing after the successful reduction of an intussusception.
