Three unusual patients with intussusceptionwho had rupture of the intussuscipiens and prolapse of the intussusceptum into the peritoneal cavity are described. In all the cases, there was no evidence of intestinal rupture pre operatively; and at laparotomy none of them had poritonitis. All were treated by resection and end to end anastomosis and they had uneventful recovery.
