The increase in road traffic accident had been cited as increase in blunt injury to the abdomen. Patients usually present immediately after injury and require urgent laparotomy. An unusual case of delayed large-bowel stricture after conservative management of an injury resulting from blunt trauma is reported. A 65-year-old man involved in a high-speed motor vehicle accident was managed in hospital by observation. He was discharged from hospital but returned 04 weeks after injury with pain, abdominal distension, vomiting and obstipation. Stricture of a 6-cm segment of sigmoid colon was found. Resection of the involved segment with primary anastomosis was curative.
