Abstract

Sigmoid volvulus is a rare colonic obstruction form, in which sigmoid colon wraps around itself. Abdominal pain/tenderness, distention, and obstipation are the main clinical features of sigmoid volvulus, while distended sigmoid colon may rarely be palpated by the physicians, which is known as the ‘von Wahl sign’. My comments relate to a case report, in which a patient with sigmoid volvulus and von Wahl sign was presented.
