Gastrointestinal involvement in scleroderma is almost universal. We describe a patient with a benign stricture and volvulus of transverse colon, a life threatening but treatable complication of scleroderma bowel disease. We review the literature on colon volvulus in scleroderma and discuss the importance of recognizing this rare complication.
