Many cases of Peutz Jeghers Syndrome presenting as intestinal obstruction with intussusception at various levels were reported in literature. This is a case of a 35 years old male farmer who presented to our hospital with the chief complaints of brown coloured stools since one month, pain in lower abdomen and bleeding per rectum since one week. All the findings of the examination were suggestive of intestinal obstruction. Further confirmation was made by Abdominal sonography, Contrast Enhanced Computed Tomography of abdomen and Sigmoidoscopy with colonic polyp biopsy. After going through all the investigations, a clinical diagnosis of multiple intestinal polyposis with ileo-colic intussusception and small bowel obstruction was made. Right hemicolectomy with ileo-colic anastomosis was performed and the specimen was sent for histopathological examination. A final diagnosis of Peutz Jeghers Syndrome was made based on Histopathology. Post surgical prognosis was good and the patient was discharged after 13 days. A regular follow up was recommended.
