Acute pseudo-obstruction of the colon is known as Ogilvie syndrome (OS). There are varied causes of OS. Myxedema ileus (MI) as a cause of acute pseudo-obstruction is rare. Surgery in cases of MI is reserved only in cases of cecal distension of >12 cm, bowel ischemia, and perforated bowel. We present a rare case of a 71-year-old female who was operated for abdominal compartment syndrome secondary to MI.
