Figure 1: (a) Computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen. Cross-sectional image of the mid portion of intussusception (arrow) illustrates small bowel invagination through the ascending colon just above the cecum. These findings are consistent with ileo-colic intussusception. (b and c) Pathologic examination revealed gastric mucosa with a spindle cell proliferation separating and displacing the gastric glands. The epithelium is somewhat reactive appearing and the background is hemorrhagic. (Panel C) This high power image shows the plump spindle cells and numerous surrounding erythrocytes. The appearance is not high-grade and there are no definite mitoses. These features are highly suggestive of Kaposi's sarcoma
