Midgut malrotation may be a challenging diagnosis, especially when first symptoms occur during adulthood and when it modifies clinical presentation of a common pathology. Abdominal CT-scan is the most sensitive imaging investigation to reach an early diagnostic which will involve major but appropriate adjustment in therapeutic management. We present a case of left-sided acute appendicitis related to a complete midgut malrotation, with typical CT findings, and we discuss the optimal management of this disease.
