Abstract

Cecal volvulus is characterized by an axial torsion of the cecum, terminal ileum and ascending colon, being the third cause of bowel obstruction with an incidence of 2%, considered a rare pathology. We presented a rare case of a patient with a bowel obstruction secondary to cecal volvulus found during exploratory laparotomy.
