Primary omentum torsion is one of the diseases of the omentum that can lead to an acute abdomen. In this case report, primary omentum torsion was detected in a patient admitted to the emergency department with abdominal pain and was operated on due to acute abdomen findings, and its laparoscopic treatment will be explained. The purpose of the case presentation is to emphasize the necessity that primary omental torsion should be considered in acute abdomen patients whose history and physical examination do not comply with specific pathologies. Laparoscopic surgery can help with both the diagnosis and treatment of this unusual condition.
