Dr. Kevin is back four our 55th podcast and he brought a surprise tiny guest. He will be talking about Intussusception. This is a life-threatening condition which mostly affects children below the age of three. It occurs when one part of the intestine slides into the adjacent part of the intestine. This causes bowel ischemia, obstruction, and possible perforation.

The cause of most cases of intussusception in children is unknown. Though rare in adults, most cases of adult intussusception are the result of an underlying medical condition, such as a tumor.
