Abstract

Visceral myopathy is a rare bowel disease affecting peristalsis and causing pseudo-obstruction. There is no specific treatment for chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction caused by visceral myopathy. We report a case of a 30-year-old woman with visceral myopathy who, due to unsuccessful conservative treatment, underwent surgery. However, few surgeries did not give the desired result and the patient still suffers from chronic constipation, abdominal distension and pain. The diagnosis of visceral myopathy is complicated. Neither conservative nor surgical treatment of visceral myopathy is associated with good results.
