Figure 1: (a-c) Axial CT scans of the abdomen showing multiple intussusceptions (asterisks) in the jejunum and ileum caused by Kaposi's sarcoma; (a) Image shows round mass with a target pattern ("bowel-within-bowel appearance") due to adjacent bowel walls of the outer intussuscipiens (double arrows) and the inner intussusceptum (arrow). Inside, a half-moon-shaped hypodense area of fat density representing mesenteric fat, plus vessels (solid arrowhead). This pattern is observed when axis of intussusception is perpendicular to CT beam. (b, c) Images show several enteroenteric intussusception forming several loops with the abdomen and pelvis. In some, a lead point corresponding to Kaposi's submucosal masses is seen (open arrowhead)
