Intraabdominal adhesions may also lead to such a problem, it was explained that omental band was thought to be the cause of this about a rate of 3%. In this case a 20 year old female patient, virgin, not having an operation was admitted as acute abdomen. No explanation could be made what the cause was till she had an operation.
