Intestinal maltoration is a rare cause of bowel obstruction in adults and it could create a perplexing situation for surgeons
not familiar with this pediatric pathology. Symptomatic patients present either acutely with bowel obstruction and intestinal
ischemia with a midgut or cecal volvolus, or chronically with vague abdominal pain.
Several modalities can be used to describe the intestinal abnormality such as barium X-ray, computer tomography scans,
angiography and sometimes also the explorative laparotomy.
The authors report on a case 62 years-old women presented to Emergency Center for plurime episodies of biliar emesis
and diffuse abdominal pain in the last 5 days and treated for bowel obstruction secondary to a midgut volvolus in anomaly
of fetal intestinal rotation.
