This is a case report of an adult female with omental infarction caused by internal herniation and omental torsion. The patient, who had no previous surgical record, presented with three days of pain in the right upper quadrant. Ultrasound evaluation showed no signs of cholecystitis, after which an abdominal computed tomography confirmed the diagnosis. The patient underwent laparoscopic omentectomy, with an uneventful recovery. This case highlights the importance of radiological and surgical awareness of this rare condition.
