Acute intestinal intussusceptions (AII) cause a telescoping of a downstream intestinal segment by the upstream intestinal segment. The diagnosis of IIA is based more on abdominal ultrasound than on the classic clinical triad, made up of paroxysmal abdominal pain crises, vomiting and rectal bleeding. IIA is characterized in our African countries by a diagnostic delay leading to a worsening of the general condition of patients. We report 3 cases of prolapsed intestinal intussusception through the anus in infants. The aim of this work is to highlight the experience of our service in the management of prolapsed intussusception through the anus.
