Cecal volvulus is a rare cause of large bowel obstruction. Surgical therapy depends on visceral circulatory conditions at diagnosis. Possible options include endoscopic decompression, detorsion, cecopexy with or without cecostomy, right colectomy with immediate or delayed anastomosis. The present paper describes a case of cecal volvulus in a 40-year-old woman after laparoscopic removal of a pelvic mass successfully treated by laparoscopic cecopexy.
