Abstract: A rare case of intrauterine fetal midgut volvulus is described. The condition was diagnosed post delivery after the patient presented with markedly decreased fetal movements and fetal distress on cardiotocographic monitoring at 35 weeks' gestation. This baby was delivered and resuscitated before proceeding to laparotomy and bowel resection. The infant has subsequently made a good recovery. Intrauterine volvulus is rare, and presentation in this case was with fetal distress which has not previously been described as a presenting feature.
