Abstract

The Authors describe a their own observation of 25 cases of acute colonic pseudo obstruction, better known as "Ogilvie Syndrome" with the objective to demonstrate that an early recognition and prompt appropriate therapy, better if conservative, can reduce the morbidity and the mortality of the Syndrome. The surgical therapy is reserved only to that cases in which the risk of perforation of the cecum represent an absolute indication to intervention.
