51-year-old female patient with previous Roux-en-Y gastric bypass 10 years ago due to morbid obesity (adequate weight loss: BMI 44 kg/m2→27 kg/m2).

She was admitted at the emergency room for sudden abdominal pain and nausea without vomiting, At exploration she had stable hemodynamics, with distended and painful abdomen (epigastric region).

Blood test showed cholestasis and elevation of pancreatic enzymes. A CT-scan was performed identifying an occlusion due to retrograde invagination of jejunojejunal anastomosis (Fig. 1A–C), associating dilatation of the biliopancreatic limb, the bile duct and the gastric remnant (Fig. 1A).
