Neonatal intussusception is rare entity.We report this very rare case of a term male newborn, with acute jejunojejunal intussusception without any lead point. He presented with abdominal distension and signs of intestinal obstruction and abdominal sonography showed a jejunojejunal intussusceptions which was confirmed at laparotomy. Interestingly, no lead point was found. Rather 8cm of bowel distal to intussuscepted segment was found to be gangrenous bowel. Resection with Bishop Koop anastomosis done for the baby resulted in good outcome. The case is being presented for rare presentation of a rare surgical condition in a neonate with an endeavour to establish etiology for its occurrence.
