dc.description.abstractIntussusception in neonates is a rare representing less than 1% of all cases of intussusception and making up for less than 3% of neonatal bowel obstructions. Clinical features are vague, such as abdominal distension, bilious vomiting, and bloody stools, hence the possible misdiagnosis of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). It is most commonly ileoileal, compared with ileocolic in the older age groups.[1] In the absence of a definite lead point, the etiology of neonatal intussusception is mostly unknown with some evidence in the literature suggesting a link with different viral infections. Here, we present a unique case of intussusception caused by a cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in a newborn twin.
