Peutz–Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is characterized by mucocutaneous pigmentation with multiple hamartomatous polyps of the gastrointestinal tract and/or a familial history with autosomal dominant inheritance pattern having incomplete penetrance, with some cases arising from spontaneous mutations. We present this case of a 12-year-old female who presented with jejunojejunal intussusception and on exploration revealed a polypoidal mass around 50 cm from duodenojejunal flexure acting as a lead point. A segmental jejunal resection with anastomosis was performed and histopathology confirmed a solitary Peutz–Jeghers (PJ) hamartomatous polyp. She neither had mucocutaneous pigmentation nor family history of PJS or any other polyps anywhere in the gut on further evaluation by endoscopies. A solitary PJ polyp in the jejunum is a rare entity, and to the best of our knowledge, only around 13 cases have been reported in world literature so far. Regular follow-up is essential in young children, so that future manifestations of the PJS are not missed.
