Abdominal cocoon sign: an unusual cause of intestinal obstruction

725-726

Shuang Liang, Jiang-He Cui, Lin-Lin Hu,

A 46-year-old male patient came to the gastroenterology department with recurrent abdominal pain, distension, and delayed defecation. Also, three bowel obstructions had occurred within six months. He presented to his local emergency department and received intestinal dredging and antibiotic treatment. Computed tomography of the abdomen showed local dilation of the small bowel in the middle and lower abdomen, with contents visible in the lumen of the bowel. The bowels were surrounded by multiple fibrous, cable-like envelopments and thickened mesentery, as though in a cocoon.
