摘要In-utero intestinal volvulus is a rare but potential life threatening fetal complications. It is a surgical emergency and delay in diagnosis or treatment can increase the morbidity and mortality to the foetus. We report a case of mild foetal bowel dilatation diagnosed at 21 weeks of gestation. She was closely followed up and at 31 weeks of gestation, in-utero intestinal volvulus was diagnosed with the characteristic ‘whirlpool’ sign on ultrasound examination. This case emphasizes the importance of early recognition and quick decision for delivery when intestinal volvulus is diagnosed. This enabled early surgical intervention to prevent further foetal morbidity.
