Full-term neonatal intussusception is rare. Cecal duplication as a lead point for intussusception is very rare. We report a case of full-term neonate with ileo-cecal intussusception due to cecal duplication. Although cecal duplication represents rarely a surgical emergency, intussusception always needs immediate attention. The awareness of this entity is essential for diagnosis and management.
