Internal hernia involving the sigmoid mesocolon is extremely rare cause of intestinal obstruction. It is associated with early development of strangulation and gangrene. Therefore, high suspicion is necessary in the evaluation of such cases in order to prevent the related high morbidity and mortality. We present a case of an internal hernia occurring through a congenital defect in sigmoid mesocolon leading to strangulation of small bowel.
