In general, these lesions require immediate attention and reduction to prevent ischemic bowel injury. We discuss the case of a 27-month-old boy whose IC intussusception was found to spontaneously reduce before a radiology performed ultrasound and the planned air enema reduction procedure. Radiology ultrasound revealed significant inflammatory changes of the terminal ileum. The incidence of spontaneous reduction of IC intussusception is not definitively known. It is important to be familiar with the possibility of spontaneous reduction as children are often referred to academic centers for radiological or surgical reduction. This may also impact the sensitivity of studies that evaluate test characteristics of point-of-care ultrasound compared with radiology performed ultrasound for the diagnosis of IC intussusception. We review the diagnostic technique for IC intussusception and the importance of a prereduction ultrasound immediately before image-guided pressure reduction attempt.
