A 54-year-old male who had no history of previous surgery presented with chronic intermittent constipation. A barium enema showed a 2-cm stenotic lesion at the junction between splenic flexure and descending colon. A colonoscopy revealed extra-luminal compression without mucosal lesion. Laparotomy revealed a parietocolic band compressing the proximal part of the descending colon. The band was lysed. The patient's symptom has improved since the procedure.
