Forty one cases included in this study selected from January-2006-till Augest -2007. Below 6 months 8cases (19.51%) ,6 months-2 years 26 cases(63.41%), 2 years-4 years 4cases (9.76%) ,4-6 years 3 cases (7.32%). Thirty-two cases (78.04%) were male, 9 cases (21.95%) were female.This study showed sex preponderance (male:female ratio)(4:1.2). Thirty-six cases (87.80%) were from urban area while 5cases (12.2%) were from rural area.Regarding seasonal variation appear 21 cases (51.21%) in summer,13 cases (31.7% ) in spring,7cases(17.07)in winter.This study showed variation in presentation ,25 cases (60.97%) presenting with bloody diarrhea,12 cases(29.26%) with red current jelly stool ,4cases (9.75%) with abdominal distention.In ultrasound study of 31cases (75.60%),16 cases (51.6%) showed no mass,15 cases (48.4%) showed right side mass or left side mass.According to type of feeding 16 cases (39.02%) (mixed feeding) ,15cases (36.58%) (breast feeding),10cases(24.39%)(bottle feeding).In all cases surgical reduction performed. Introduction Intussusception is the most common cause of intestinal obstruction between 3months-6years of age.Sixty percent younger than 1 years,80% of cases befor 24 month.Seasonal incidence peak in spring and autumn and correlate with adenovirus infection .Male:Female 4:1. Few intussusception reduce spontaneously but if left 12

The illness starts suddenly with sever paroxysmal colicky abdominal pain that recurs at frequent intervals and is accompanied with loud crying.Initially the infant looks well and plays normally between the attacks.(5) Diagnosis of intussusception depend on clinical hisatory and physical finding,plain abdominal x-ray that show density in area intussusception.,barium enema that show filling defect with abdominal U/S which is sensitive mathod.(1) During episodes of pain,child becoms pale espcially around the mouh ,and draw up his legs.Asausage-shaped mass,often palpable in the abdomen,passage of acharacteristic red current jelly stool comprising blood stained mucous-tend to occur later in the illness and may be first seen after rectal examination.Intravenous volume expansion is likely to required immediately as there is pooling of fluid in the gut, which lead to hypovolemic shock which is an important complication of intussusception.(4) The presence of bloody mucous on the finger as it is withdrawn after rectal examination supports the diagnosis of intussusception.If the condition is not diagnosed early(during the first day or two) the infant will pass into ashock like state with bile stained vomiting,abdominal distention and high fever secondary to intestinal isckaemia and gangren.(5) Reduction is emergency.Success rate of radiological reduction under U/S is 50% if symptoms > first 48 hr. and 70-90% if
