We present a rare case of an 88-year-old woman with ileocolic intussusception up to the splenic flexure due to a mesenterium commune. Diagnosis was made by abdominal scan demonstrating a mass with a “target” aspect. The patient was operated. Because of the lack of intestinal tumor on CT scan and in order to avoid subtotal colectomy, intestinal invagination was reduced followed by a right colectomy.
