There have been to the best of our knowledge few reported cases Double volvulus in the literature relating to this topic. It has been long considered an unlikely differential in cases of acute abdomen presentations. However with our case report we would like to state that having two surgical emergencies simultaneously in a single patient is not that uncommon as well as the fact that even with an obvious diagnosis or pathology in mind we should, after laparotomy, perform a thorough search for any other possible sources of malady with keen inspection. We report a case of double volvulus of the small and large bowel in a young female presenting with signs of peritonitis. The clinical presentation was of generalised peritonitis and radiological features of bowel obstruction. This sort of presentation can be a cause for acute abdomen, more commonly than expected, sometimes with idiopathic causes and can be the cause on rapid onset gangrene in patients if not adequately and expeditiously identified and rectified.
