Dr. Sunidhi Rajput | Dr. S Nedunchezhian | Dr. P Prabhakar | Dr. Nithya Kumar

Abstract: Ileosigmoid knotting is one of the rare causes of acute abdomen and intestinal obstruction. We present a case of a 36 - year - old male who presented to the emergency department in septic shock with features suggestive of Acute intestinal obstruction and was diagnosed as a case of Type III Ileosigmoid knotting intraoperatively. Although rare, Ileosigmoid knotting should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with acute abdominal pain and distention. Early diagnosis and prompt surgical intervention are critical for a favorable outcome. The high mortality rate is mainly due to the rapid progression to gangrene and sepsis.
