Abstract

The role of CT in the evaluation of patients with small bowel obstruction, with emphasis on the findings of strangulating obstruction, has been extensively described in the literature. We report a rare case of small bowel volvulus related to a heterogeneous abdominal mass detected on CT. On microscopic examination the mass proved to be a chronically torted epiploic appendix.
