Abstract

Background

Transvaginal bowel evisceration is an exceptionally rare event. Most reported cases are of small bowel evisceration in postmenopausal women who have undergone hysterectomy.

Case

Here, we report an isolated case of complete procidentia and spontaneous sigmoid colon evisceration leading to sepsis in an 89-year-old woman with no surgical history.

Conclusions

We highlight the risk factors, clinical presentation, and treatment options for this unique multidisciplinary emergency.
