Appendiceal intussusception is an extremely rare condition ranging from partial invagination of the appendix to involvement of the entire colon. It may be due to intraluminal foreign bodies, lymphoid hyperplasia, polyps, neoplasia, or endometriosis. Endometriosis is an extremely rare cause of appendiceal intussusception. Patients usually present with symptoms of acute appendicitis. In the case presented here, appendiceal invagination was detected in laparoscopic exploration during surgery for suspected acute appendicitis and was treated laparoscopically.

Keywords: Acute appendicitis, appendix intussusception, endometriosis

Apandiksin intussusepsiyonu, apandiksin kısmi invajinasyonundan kolonun tamamının tutulumuna kadar değişen son derece nadir bir durum olup, intraluminal yabancı cisimlere, lenfoid hiperplaziye, poliplere, neoplazilere ve endometriozis gibi kitlesel oluşumlara bağlı gelişebilir. Endometriozis, apandiks intussusepsiyonunun son derece nadir bir sebebidir. Genellikle akut apandisit semptomlarıyla hastalar başvururlar. Olgumuzda da akut apandisit ön tanısıyla cerrahi planlanan hastaya, laparoskopik eksplorasyonda tespit edilen apandiks invajinasyonunun, yine laparoskopik olarak cerrahi tedavisi sunulmuştur.
