 Benign tumor of the small intestine is rare and it is difficult to diagnose accurately. We report a child with intussusception due to benign polyp of the jejunum that was successfully treated by laparoscopic-assisted surgery. A12-years-old child was admitted to our hospital complaining of abdominal pain and nausea without any previous surgical history. She was diagnosed as having intussusception due to benign tumor of the jejunum by enhanced abdominal ultrasonography using new enhancing agent, Sonazoid. Diagnostic and therapeutic laparoscopic-assisted surgery was performed. Partial resection of the jejunum was performed with the diagnosis of intussusception due to benign tumor. Histopathological examination revealed this benign tumor to be Peutz-Jeghers type polyp.
