It is characterized by recurrent or persistent findings of intestinal obstruction in the absence of any mechanical obstruction. Various systemic or congenital diseases are held responsible in the etiology; moreover, it is accepted as idiopathic upon failure of detection of a true reason. We present hereby two rare cases who had been admitted with the symptoms of nausea, vomiting, constipation and tetany, and were diagnosed as chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction.
