Abstract
Intestinal obstruction is a rare but important complication of pregnancy and puerperium leading to increased maternal and fetal motality. Diagnosis is often delayed or missed because many of the manifestations of intestinal obstruction such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain can be interpreted as pregnancy related symptoms. This delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis, reluctance to surgery during pregnancy are thought to be responsible for the high maternal and fetal death rate. So we report a case of postpartum small bowel obstruction following vaginal delivery with a review of the literature.
Key Words: Pregnancy, Small bowel obstruction, Adhesion
