Most cases of intussusception in adults are secondary to a pathologic condition that serves as a lead point. Intussusception has been reported in the bariatric literature, typically due to intussusception of the jejunojejunostomy. However, other causes of intussusception should be considered, including a Meckel's diverticulum (MD). Simple diverticulectomy or segmental resection is the preferred treatment since the malignancy rate is low. We present an interesting case of a patient with past surgical history of open Roux-en-Y gastric bypass who presented with intussusception. Intraoperatively, an MD was encountered and treated with diverticulectomy. 4 months later, she re-presented with recurrent intussusception and was subsequently taken back to the operating room for revision of her jejunojejunostomy. The postoperative course was uncomplicated.
