ABSTRACT: Two patients of postoperative intestinal obstruction following repair of eventration of diaphragm, subsequently diagnosed as postoperative intussusception managed successfully, are reported. Absence of common features of intussusception led to delay in the diagnosis. Rarity of this phenomenon and incidentally two consecutive cases of postoperative intussusception occurring after repair of eventration of diaphragm prompted to report these two cases.
