Intestinal obstruction may be caused by various clinical conditions including internal herniation. We report a 71-year-old female patient who presented with abdominal pain, distention, vomiting and subsequent surgically confirmed herniation of small bowel through a ring which was formed by an appendix epiploica, mesosigmoid, and sigmoid colon. This kind of herniation should be taken into account in differential diagnosis of intestinal obstruction. Early surgical intervention may prevent the possible complications of intestinal obstruction.
