Intussusception is the most common abdominal emergency in children younger than 2 years old. It is often considered idiopathic. However, an underlying disease can cause a pathological lead point for the intussusception. Its incidence after trauma is uncommon, and traumatic intussusception in children is even rarer. In Korea, traumatic intussusception in a child has never been reported. We experienced a case of traumatic intussusception in a 3-year-old girl. The patient was injured by a plastic bar while playing, and she soon complained of abdominal pain. We identified an ileo-ileal intussusception on computed tomogram. The intussusception was reduced successfully by air reduction in the emergency department. She was sent to home without complication after three hospital days.
