Ileosigmoid knot, also known as compound volvulus, is an unusual and a rare cause of intestinal obstruction. We are reporting a case of ileosigmoid knot in a 25-year-old male, who presented with features of acute intestinal obstruction, peritonitis and hypovolemic shock. On immediate exploration after resuscitation, we found minimal haemorrhagic intraperitoneal fluid and gangrenous total colon, gangrenous distal ileal loop twisted around the base of the gangrenous sigmoid loop. Total colectomy with distal ilectomy (50 cms), Hartmann’s procedure with end ileostomy was done. After 3 months we performed ileorectal anastomosis.
