Peutz-Jeghers syndrome complicated with intussusception in late pregnancy

A 19-year-old woman who was 34 weeks pregnant presented at The Affiliated Hospital of Southwest Medical University (Luzhou, China) in September, 2018, with a 3-day history of abdominal pain, accompanied by vomiting and constipation. Physical examination revealed hyperpigmented macules on her lips ( figure, A), and an abdominal bulge, abdominal tenderness, and hyperactive bowel sounds. A non-contrast CT scan indicated the presence of intussusception ( figure, B) and intrauterine late pregnancy. The patient reported that her mother had undergone bowel resection twice because of intussusception and died of intestinal cancer.
