Gastroduodenal intussusception is the rarest forms of adult intussusception. We present a case of gastroduodenal intussusception due to a gastric Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumour (GIST). The patient was a 65-year-old female who clinically presented as acute gastric outlet obstruction. The patient was managed by gentle reduction of the intussusception, followed by wedge resection of the tumour. She was relieved of her symptoms and recurrence free for past one year.
