We report a rare case of a 30-year-old man, with Peutz-
Jeghers syndrome who was admitted to our clinic with
recurrent occlusion episodes of the small intestine and
underwent operations three times due to intestinal
intussusception. The enteroscopic visualization of multiple
sessile and peduncular polyps throughout the small
intestine was the reason why combined surgical and
endoscopic treatment was decided on to the remove the
hamartomatous polyps from the intestine. A review of the
relevant literature is cited.
