One of the causes of invagination in adults is primary small bowel lymphoma. Primary small bowel lymphomas are rare, present themselves with complications due to diagnostic difficulties, and are diagnosed only after surgical intervention. In case of invagination, one of the complications of these tumors, namely primary small bowel lymphoma, should also be considered as a cause in the diagnosis. In this paper, the diagnosis and therapy of a rare case of primary polypoid-type small intestinal lymphoma demonstrating findings of obstruction due to invagination have been presented and discussed in the light of the literature.
