Why don't you attach the file and I'll see if the same happens to me?
Ok, this is the strangest thing and I have no idea what is causing it. I ahve a parcel polygon file of a township I am a consultant for. I load the shapefile into ArcMap and it zoomed to the full extent. As soon as I use the zoom tool and zoom into an area, random parcels disappear!! I zoom back to full extent and they are all there, then I zoom to any part on the screen and they randomly disappear giving me "holes" in my parcel file. It sucks. Has anyone ever experienced this or know why this happens? Thanks.

I would try recreating the spatial index and then maybe repair geometry.

It sounds like a corrupt file to me. I've had this happen before (many times) when I used to export .shp files from Autodesk drawings. Maybe a glitchy network connection is to blame? I usually ended up re-exporting and everything worked fine after a try or two. If you have access to a fresh file then I would scrap the one your working on and start over.
If you've put in a ton of work already, try Rob's suggestion.
You could also try exporting the .shp as a Feature class and run the "Check Geometry" in ArcToolbox (as stated by DaveB): Data Management - Features - Check Geometry....and then try repairing the geometry if a problem is found.
