Small bowel volvulus (SBV) is a rare condition even though the incidence in Africa and Asia is high. It requires emergency surgical intervention, the more so as the diagnosis may cause problems hence consuming time and the risk of the bowel getting gangrenous increases. Small bowel volvulus is of two types; primary and secondary. Here is a case of primary small bowel volvulus with no evidence of gangrenous bowel even though it was diagnosed and managed on the fourth day.
