Intussusception is a disorder that is somewhat rare, but quite serious in nature. When it occurs, part of the intestine, usually the colon or the small intestine slides into another portion of intestine. This sliding is referred to as "telescoping" and usually causes the intestine to become blocked, thus keeping fluids and food from being able to pass through. Intussusception can also cause the affected portion of the intestine to lose blood supply. This is the most common reason for infants who suffer with intestinal obstruction. Children who have intestinal issues tend to be harder to diagnose and often have no known cause.
