Segmental absence of intestinal musculature (SAIM) is a rare cause of intestinal obstruction and/or perforation seen in neonates, and rarely in adults. We present a case of SAIM in a 48-year-old male, who presented with acute abdominal symptoms and was repeatedly explored because of recurrence of abdominal symptoms.
