Intestinal malrotation may occur as an isolated deformity. It may involve either the proximal (duodenojejunal) or the distal (cecocolic) intestinal segment. A survey of 28 consecutive cases of rotational abnormalities in the adult population demonstrates a diversity of roentgenographic presentations. Twelve cases exhibited the classical form of nonrotation of the entire midgut. The rest showed isolated forms of complete and partial rotations as well as a variety of intermediary forms previously not reported in the literature. Familiarization with this concept avoids confusing interpretations and errors in the roentgenographic diagnosis.
