Abstract

35 years old female admitted with features of adhesive intestinal obstruction, not responding to conservative management. On exploratory laparotomy, about 40cms of small bowel (ileum) found to be gangrenous, secondary to transmesenteric herniation of ileum through the mesentery. Ileal resection anastomosis with repair of the mesenteric defect done. This case is being presented for the rarity of its incidence and to impress upon the need for emergent management in transmesenteric hernias with or without bowel gangrene.
