Caecum volvulus (CV) is defined as an axial twisting that causes an inversion position of the caecum, ascending colon and terminal ileum. These anatomical findings are responsible for some clinical features. Obstruction and strangulation are the most important and life-threatening. We present the case of 50 years old woman with sudden acute severe abdominal pain and distension of about 24 hours.
