ABSTRACT
The article describes the case of a 9-year-old girl presented with an acute onset of abdominal pain and intestinal cramps and whose medical history was significant for a recurrent peritonitis due to familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) diagnosed a year before the present illness. An ultrasound indicated a widened superior mesenteric vein and widened and convoluted small mesenteric veins next to the unfilled small intestine. Early surgery is suggested when diagnosis of volvulus is established.
