Surgical treatment of pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis with pneumo-peritoneum secondary to sigmoid volvulus following one year of follow-up.
Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis is seen in the small intestine in 42% of cases, in the colon in 36%, and in both the colon and small intestine and extra-intestinal tissues such as the mesentery and omentum in 22% (4).
Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis is rarely seen and several factors are held responsible in the etiology.
After the first description of pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis in 1730 by Du Vernoy in autopsy specimens, these entities were named in 1825 by Mayer.
Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis could be primary in 15% of cases without obvious cause or secondary to other pathology in 85% of cases like mesenteric vascular disease, necrotising enterocolitis, inflammatory bowel disease and connective tissue disorder as scleroderma.
Usually, this form has no associated symptoms, and it is often called pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis [24].
