We present two cases of acute colonic pseudo-obstruction, one complicated with perforation. Orthopedic surgery was the pathogenetic factor in both cases. Recovery was successful in both patients after appropriate treatment. The importance of conventional X-ray techniques, and more specially the plain X-ray of the abdomen, is stressed regarding early diagnosis and follow-up.
