Abstract: Small intestinal lipomas are benign adipose tumors that arise within the intestinal wall or mesentery of the small bowel. Following the data of reports, the incidence of this formation ranges from 0.035% to 4% [1]. The small bowel is the second most common site of lipomas in the gastrointestinal, and the first belongs to the large intestine. In general, the patient has no symptoms. However, small bowel lipomas can cause numerous complications in large sizes. We present a rare case of a 68 - year - old Vietnamese female patient who underwent an acute small bowel intussusception emergency due to a small intestinal lipoma.
