Intrauterine volvulus with malrotation: prenatal diagnosis.

Volvulus is a very rare condition which consists of the rotation of the small intestine and the proximal colon around the superior mesenteric artery, leading to complete intestinal obstruction and ischemic vascular damage. The frequency of this condition is 1 in 6000 live births. We report a case of midgut vovulus with malrotation with a prenatal diagnosis at the end of the week 33. We describe the importance of prenatal echotomographic diagnosis which offers the possibility of performing differential diagnosis. Additionally, it is important to remember that the prognoses of these patients depend on the length of remaining intestine, the location of the intestinal obstruction, the presence of meconium peritonitis, the possibility of associated malformations, but above all, on birth weight and level of prematurity.
