Intrathoracic gastric volvulus with herniation of colon and omentum in a paraesophageal hernia is a rare occurrence. It may present as an acute surgical emergency with life-threatening complications. The diagnosis is usually made by imaging studies and endoscopy. Definite treatment is surgery. We present the laparoscopic management of this case.
