Abstract

The purpose of the study is to report a case of spontaneous, primary torsion of omentum. The analyses showed the signs of inflammation, and the main symptom was vomiting. Physical examination: high tenderness and guarding in the ileocecal region. It was decided to operate on the patient immediately since the pain was severe and it was treated as an urgent case of appendicitis. The study aims to present that the typical clinical presentation of appendicitis can have other causes, for example, the torsion of omentum. The torqued part was gangrenous, and it was resected. In the last 40 years, this has been the first registered case in our hospital. Having done the MEDLINE literature review, we are proposing a more elaborate classification of the torsion of omentum.
