Abstract  
Volvulus is a condition in which the small bowel and proximal colon twist around the superior mesenteric artery, and a surgical emergency associated with high intrauterine morbidity and mortality. Intestinal volvulus can occur at any age, but most cases of volvulus occur in infants with anomalies of intestinal rotation and fixation. Intestinal volvulus without malrotation is a rare condition, as only normal intestinal rotation and fixation are present. The authors report a case of intestinal volvulus without malrotation in one fetus of twins.
