Post-traumatic intestinal stenosis (PIS) is an uncommon sequela of blunt abdominal trauma, in which injury to the mesentery or bowel wall leads to focal ischemic stricture of that segment. We present a case of PIS of the ileum diagnosed on the basis of radiological studies and surgical and pathologic findings in a patient with partial small bowel obstruction occurring five weeks after blunt abdominal trauma.
