Jejunogastric intussusception (JGI) is a rare life-threatening complication of gastrectomy or gastrojejunostomy. Diagnosis of this condition has been reported to be difficult in most of the cases. An early diagnosis and urgent surgical intervention are essential to avoid mortality. We present a case of the characteristic US and CT findings of this entity.
