Abdominal cocoon formation is a chronic condition which usually presents with intermittent bowel obstruction and is typically described with benign conditions. In developing countries like India, where tuberculosis is endemic, abdominal cocoon in young patients without any other known chronic disease is mostly associated with abdominal tuberculosis. Abdominal cocoon secondary to malignant causes has been reported but is extremely rare, mostly in association with ovarian thecomas. Abdominal cocoon secondary to abdominal tuberculosis has been described only in few reports. We present a case of young female who presented with abdominal cocoon which was subsequently proven to be secondary to diffusely infiltrative gastric carcinoma.
