Abstract


Colonic lipomas are benign tumors. Very rarely, are complicated with colocolic invaginations. We report the case of a 39 year old patient who consulted for abdominal pain and bowel dysfunction. In the abdominal examination it was a soft consistency mass measured 15 cm. The rectal touch was normal. Colonoscopy showed a rounded lobed formation preventing progression and biopsies in the right angle colic. In computed tomography it was an appearance of an intussusception extent of the epigastrium in the right iliac fossa.The patient had a right hemicolectomy. The postoperative course was simple.

Abstract: (french)


Les lipomes coliques sont des tumeurs bénignes. Ils se compliquent, très rarement, d'invaginations colocolique. Nous rapportons l'observation d'une patiente âgée de 39 ans qui consultait pour douleurs abdominales et troubles du transit. L'examen abdominal trouvait une masse sus ombilicale de 15 cm de consistance molle. Le toucher rectale était normal. La colonoscopie trouvait une formation arrondie polylobée empêchant la progression au-delà de l'angle colique droit de consistance rénitente empêchant les biopsies. La tomodensitométrie montrait une importante masse intestinale étendue de l'épigastre jusqu'à la fosse iliaque droite prenant l'aspect d'une pseudoinvagination. La patiente avait eu une hémicolectomie droite. Les suites opératoires étaient simples.
