Abstract

This is the first reported case of intussusception in a patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus complicated by gastroparesis and autonomic neuropathy. Literature on the reported cases of intussusception in patients with diabetes, its aetiopathology and possible association with gastroparesis has been systematically reviewed following a Medline database search (1951 to June 2003) Intussusception should be considered in the differential diagnosis of gastrointestinal symptoms in diabetic patents presenting with hyperglycaemia.
