Volvulus is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction. The main types of colonic volvulus are sigmoid volvulus and cecal volvulus. The simultaneous occurrence of cecal and sigmoid colon volvulus is extremely unusual. To our knowledge, few reports on simultaneous sigmoid and cecum colon have been published to date. We are reporting a case of a synchronous volvulus of ceacum and sigmoid colon.
