Introduction: Small intestine intussusception in adults is a rare clinical event and should arouse a suspicion of genetic syndromes like Peutz Jeghers syndrome. Case Report: We present a 28 year old man with recurrent episodes of pain abdomen with oral hyper pigmented patches. He was diagnosed to have multiple small intestine polyps with intussusception. He underwent an explorative laparotomy and resection of the involved jejunal segment due to impaired vascularity. Conclusion: Peutz Jeghers syndrome is a rare cause of small intestine polyps and intussusception and obstruction especially in young adults.
