Fetal intussusception is not common and the underlying mechanism triggering the event is not known at present. There are few reports of successful diagnosis in fetus with prenatal ultrasongraphy. It may be detected by meconium peritonitis. Meconium peritonitis is a nonbacterial foreign body reaction or chemical inflammation by intestinal perforation result from intestianl atresia, intussusception and fetal bowel obstruction. Recently we experienced a 33+1 weeks of gestational fetus with fetal intussusception who had prenatal ultrasonographic detection with meconium peritonitis, and the infant was underwent postnatal laparotomy. We present this case with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Intussusception, Meconium peritonitis, Prenatal diagnosis
