Abdominal cocoon is a rare cause of small intestinal obstruction observed in young females in tropical regions. It manifests by forming a membrane that typically encases the small bowel loops, leading to mechanical obstruction. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult and is usually established during laparotomy. We report a case of abdominal cocoon in a young woman diagnosed on abdominal sonography.
