A 44-year-old female patient, with developmental disabilities and mental retardation after central nervous system (CNS) infection during infancy, presented with a complaint of severe abdominal distension and weight loss for the past two months. The patient was diagnosed with an intestinal pseudo-obstruction, based on radiological findings and an endoscopic finding of marked gaseous distension of the stomach and the small bowel without stenosis and mechanical obstruction. The patient had delayed gastrointestinal mobility. We report a case of an intestinal pseudo-obstruction accompanied with mental retardation after CNS infection.
