Acute gastric volvulus with necrosis of the stomach and the left lower pulmonary lobe.

Abstract

Acute gastric volvulus in a young patient with a known chronic torsion of the stomach is reported. Unfamiliarity with the condition resulted in delayed admittance for surgery where a necrotic stomach and left lower pulmonary lobe were removed. The pathogenesis and treatment of this uncommon disorder is discussed.
