A 16-YEAR-OLD girl was referred to a pediatric surgeon with complaints of bloody diarrhea and abdominal pain for the past 3 days. She developed cramping abdominal pain and initially watery diarrhea after having eaten at a fast-food restaurant 3 days prior to hospital admission. Physical examination revealed periumbilical epigastric tenderness. There was no history of fever or any other urinary tract symptoms. Computed tomographic scan revealed ileocolic intussusception with a mass in the cecum (Figure 1). She underwent limited right colectomy (Figure 2 and Figure 3).
