Abstract: Retrograde jejunogastric intussusception is a rare acute abdominal condition where the small bowel loops get incarcerated and may get strangulated inside the stomach.We report one such rare case of a 60 yearold male who had retrograde jejunogastric intussusception following gastrojejunostomy. Retrograde jejunogastric intussusception is a rare acute abdominal condition which is a rare complication after gastric surgery. The presence of a mobile mass associated with nausea and vomiting in a patient with previous history of gastric surgery is virtually pathognomic of acute retrograde intussusception. A high degree of suspicion is required for preoperative diagnosis of the case which should be followed by prompt surgery.Diagnosis of JGI was confirmed with Upper gastro intestinal endoscopy findings. After prompt resuscitation early surgery was done.Awareness of such complication, early diagnosis and prompt surgery can reduce the mortality of JGI.We report a case of Jejuno gastric intussusception, who was previously operated chronic duodenal ulcer.
