The cause in children is typically unknown; in adults a ''lead point'' is sometimes present. Risk factors in children include certain infections, diseases like [[cystic fibrosis]], and [[intestinal polyp]]s. Risk factors in adults include [[endometriosis]], [[bowel adhesions]], and [[intestinal tumors]].<ref name=Mar2017/> Diagnosis is often supported by [[medical imaging]].
