We report a case of a large inflammatory fibroid polyp of the small bowel presenting with intussusception in a 22-year-old man. Sonography demonstrated a solid, mobile, homogeneous, echogenic mass surrounded by the typical mural layers of an invaginated ileum. CT demonstrated a well-defined intraluminal solid mass with an attenuation of 17 HU. The pathologic diagnosis after segmental ileal resection was ileal inflammatory fibroid polyp.
