Midgut malrotation is a congenital anomaly that usually occurs during infancy. The most common type is the “classic” form, which is defined as complete failure of rotation of both proximal (duodenojejunal limb) and distal (cecocolic) small bowel loops (nonrotation). Delayed diagnosis of midgut malrotation anomalies may lead to progression to catastrophic complications including volvulus and ischemic necrosis. Ladd’s procedure is the standard of care. We aimed to report a brief case of a midgut nonrotation in an adult male patient.
