A healthy 45-year-old woman with a previous Rouxen-Y gastric bypass presented with the signs, symptoms and blood analysis results consistent with acute pancreatitis. She was initially treated nonoperatively and subsequently went into circulatory shock. Computerized tomographic scan and exploratory laparotomy revealed a volvulus of the afferent jejunal limb with secondary obstruction, necrosis, and perforation of the bypassed stomach.
