Intra-abdominal adhesions as the cause of severe abdominal pain were diagnosed in eight patients because (1) other abdominal diseases had been excluded, (2) certain movements, but only rarely meals, precipitated or increased the pain, (3) laparoscopy had confirmed adhesions and their manipulation had caused pain. After the adhesions had been removed at laparoscopy the pain either disappeared or was decisively reduced.
