Jejunogastric intussusception (JGI) is a rare condition and less than 200 cases have been published since its first description in 1914. In addition, JGI is potentially lethal complication of gastrectomy or gastrojejunostomy. We report the case of a 73-year-old man with a history of a Billroth II procedure who presented to the emergency department after 6 hours of epigastric pain and hematemesis. Endoscopy and computed tomography showed intussuscepted jejunum through a gastrojejunostomy that required emergency operation. At laparotomy a retrograde type II, JGI was confirmed and managed by resection of involved intestine. Postoperative recovery was uneventful. This case presents the rare complication of acute jejunogastric intussusception more than 25 years after a Billroth II procedure.
