Mantle cell lymphoma is an aggressive type of B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that originates from small to medium sized lymphocytes located in the mantle zone of the lymph node. The gastrointestinal tract is the predominant site of extranodal involvement in the form of multiple lymphomatous polyposis. Multiple lymphomatous polyposis due to mantle cell lymphoma presenting with intussusception is uncommon and very few cases have been reported.  We are reporting a Mantle cell lymphoma with multiple lymphomatous polyposis presenting with intussusception in a 62 years old male.
