Volvulus of the transverse colon is rare in the pediatric population. We present the tenth known case of a volvulus of the transverse colon in a child. A barium enema demonstrated the bird beak appearance of the colon and showed an air-contrast mirror image in the proximal end. The 360° volvulus found at surgery was treated successfully by detorsion of the bowel.
