Ogilvies syndrome is a rare condition characterized by acute colonic dilatation in the absence of mechanical obstruction. It usually occurs in hospitalized patients with severe illness, but it is rarely associated to strokes. We report a case of a 61-years-old male with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage complicated with recurrent episodes of Ogilvies syndrome. In this case, the main keys are local and systemic consequences and implications of recurrences in the final outcome.
