Ogilvie's Syndrome in a Young Female With Chronic Constipation  Cureus

Ogilvie’s syndrome, also known as acute colonic pseudo-obstruction, is often encountered in post-surgical patients or those with serious comorbidities requiring intensive care.

Our case report highlights a unique case of Ogilvie’s syndrome in a young female with no recent trauma or surgical history. To that extent, we discuss risk factors that predisposed her to this condition, including her history of chronic constipation. We also emphasize the need for outpatient workups for such patients to prevent the worsening of their symptoms.
