Only in 15% of cases, colonic volvulus is one of the causes of large-bowel obstruction. Splenic flexure volvulus is the rarest subtype of colonic volvulus (<1% of cases). We report one such case in a 50-year-old female, who was subjected to extended left hemicolectomy after stabilization. The histopathology report showed no evidence of malignancy.
