A case of stricture type ischemic colitis followed up by colorectal endoscopy and external ultrasonography


Journal of the Japan Society of Coloproctology 49(3): 230-236
A case of stricture type ischemic colitis followed up by colorectal endoscopy and external ultrasonography
This is a report about a case of stricture type ischemic colitis, which was followed up by colorectal endoscopy and external ultrasonography (US). A 60-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of left lower abdominal pain and bloody stool. US revealed a thick colon wall. It was observed as a low-echo layer between the mucosa and submucosa caused by inflammation. The degree of endoscopic findings corresponded to the degree of wall thickening more than to blood chemical findings (CRP or WBC). US is a safe and useful method for the treatment of ischemic colitis.
