The jejunoileal bypass is one of the bariatric surgical options which have been abandoned for two reasons: first, it leads to severe malnutrition and liver failure and, second, the bypassed jejunum—being a blind loop—is susceptible to bacterial accumulation which might become a source of sepsis due to bacterial translocation. We hereby report a case of a 27-year-old lady who presented with jejunojejunal intussusception of the blind jejunal loop 2 years after jejunoileal bypass surgery. This complication could have led to serious consequences if it was not managed in the appropriate time.
