Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome (PJS) is a rare polyposis syndrome commonly affecting the small bowel with recurrent obstruction due to polyp related intussusception. Although the stomach is the second most common site for PJS polyps, gastric outlet obstruction due to gastro-gastric intussusception is an extremely rare phenomenon. In this report we share our experience of a case of an acute gastric outlet obstruction, due to a large distal gastric polypoid mass, in a 26 year old female and present our approach to the management of this rare occurrence.
