It classically presents with the clinical triad of retching, epigastric pain, and difficulty in passing a nasogastric tube. Patient may have other signs and symptoms of upper gastrointestinal obstruction e.g. abdominal distention with crampy abdominal pain, vomiting and haemodynamic instability. We present an unusual presentation of a patient of gastric volvulus.
