|| A case of colon lipoma presenting with intussusception
|| An 84-year-old man, who had been found to have a submucosal tumor in the ascending colon two years before, was admitted to our hospital for right lower quadrant abdominal pain and melena. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan showed intussusception in the ascending colon, resulting from a fat-density tumor. The intussusception was located by colonoscopy. Since the colonic tumor was enlarged in comparison with two years ago and had an ulcer at the top of the tumor, there was the possibility of malignancy and recurrence of intussusception. He underwent a laparoscopy-assisted right colectomy with lymph node dissection. Pathologically, the tumor of the ascending colon was a benign lipoma.
