Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome is considered a pathology of malformative origin secondary to a chromosomal microdeletion; presenting a prevalence of 1-9/100,000 live births with characteristic features such as microcephaly, distinctive facial features, short stature, intellectual disability, and conduct disorders. In this case report, the presence of a cecum volvulus with involvement of the ascending colon is presented in a patient with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome, who at the time of admission and on a plain radiograph was identified with the typical kidney image, compatible with cecum volvulus, for which he underwent emergency surgical intervention. Subsequently, the patient was discharged within a month without complications.
