Colo-colonic intussusception in adults is often caused by malignant lesions colonic lipomas are rare mesenchymal tumors and the majority are asymptomatic and their size is usually <2 cm. Giant submucosal lipomas in sigmoid colon are rare mesenchymal tumors and rarely cause colo-colonic intussusception. Abdominal computed tomography and colonoscopy are the choice of modalities for preoperative diagnosis.
