Introduction: Cecal volvulus is the second most common volvulus among colonic volvulus, usually presenting as bowel obstruction.

Case Presentation: A 65 year old female presented with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension and abscense of flatus and stool

Erect Abdominal radiograph showed marked colonic distension with air-fluid levels. Urgent surgical treatment is decided.

Conclusion: Cecal volvulus should always be considered as a possible cause of mechanical ileus. Radiographs and CT are invaluable in the diagnosis of this condition.
