Adult intestinal hamartomas is uncommon, intussusception caused by simple intestinal hamartomas are extremely rare. However, there is no report yet like our isolated giant ileum hamartoma. We report an unusual case of a 34-year-old woman who suffered abdominal pain for more than 1 year, and accompanied with obvious symptoms of anemia. The admission CT examination revealed small bowel intussusception. So we had a laparotomy for her. After the reduction of the intussusception, we found a huge mass of 7.5 cm × 2 cm × 2 cm in the intestine, and postoperative pathology showed ileum hamartoma.
