AbstractA 15-year-old boy, who had an episode of abdominal colic 4 years earlier, presented now with a week-long episode of abdominal pain. A computed tomographic scan confirmed the presence of an intussusception. Surprisingly, the surgery identified an accessory spleen as the lead point. At 9 months follow-up, the young boy has had no further abdominal discomfort. This report adds accessory spleen to the list of very rare pathological lead points in intussusception.
