Sigmoid volvulus occurs when the sigmoid colic loop gets wrapped around its own mesocolon. While this condition is categorized as an extremely rare emergency in the pediatric population, diagnosis is often difficult due to the fact that its aspecific manifestations or sneaky symptoms are similar to other medical conditions. The available treatment options remain controversial up to this day, and the non-operative approach is more preferred in treating hemodynamic stable patients. This paper examines the case study of a 13-year-old girl suffering from sigmoid volvulus, who was treated with water-soluble contrast enema, in order to determine whether this method is efficient and effective in successfully treating the pathology of this condition.
