Intestinal malrotation is a developmental anomaly of the midgut in which the normal fetal rotation of intestines around the superior mesenteric artery and their fixation in the peritoneal cavity fail. Rotational anomalies of the midgut are rare in adults. Operative intervention is required generally when they are symptomatic. While difficult to diagnose, prompt recognition and surgical treatment usually lead to a successful outcome. Intestinal malrotation is rarely asymptomatic and generally diagnosed incidentally in adults. In the present report, a case of incidental intestinal malrotation with clinical findings of small bowel obstruction is discussed with a literature review.
