Intussusception is rare in adults. In this age group, symptoms are often misleading, and malignancy stands out as an important etiology, unless proven otherwise. Therefore, surgery remains the treatment of choice. We report two cases of adult intussusception, which presented as sub-acute intestinal obstruction. Both cases had intussusception on CT Abdomen. Both patients underwent surgical intervention. In first case, ileal loop along with mesenteric fat and lymph node was seen in intussusception. In second case colonic mass with lymph node involvement was seen. Hemicolectomy was done in both the patients.
