    • Abstract:
      Appendicitis and intussusception are two potentially fatal surgical pathologies occurring at different peak age groups. Simultaneous presentation of both is rare. We present such a case in an eight-month-old infant who required successful emergency laparotomy with right hemicolectomy and primary anastomosis. Appendicitis was confirmed histologically.
