Intestinal polyps are a distinctive feature of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS). These hamartomas can lead to significant complications such as intussusception or gastrointestinal bleeding which necessitate multiple laparotomies and bowel resections. In an operation for intestinal intussusception, it is preferable to simultaneously resect as many polyps as possible to prevent recurrence of complications caused by intestinal polyps. We report a case of a woman in her twenties with PJS, diagnosed as small intestinal intussusception caused by an intestinal polyp. We performed not only repair of the intussusception but also endoscopic polypectomy without resection of the small intestine. We successfully resected all polyps larger than 10mm from the duodenum to the ascending colon during the operation.
