Abstract
Ogilvieā€™s Syndrome is a rare entity in which the colon becomes massively dilated without apparent mechanical obstruction. Patients on antidepressant drugs commonly complain of dryness of the mouth, tremors, blurring of vision and constipation, which are attributed to the anticholinergic action of the drugs. We report a case of a 39-year-old female case of gastrointestinal complication (pseudo-intestinal obstruction), which are considered rare according to a review of the literature.
