A case of intestinal infarction due to superior mesenteric artery embolism is described in a 30-year-old female with Crohn's disease. This was accompanied by bladder opacification following enterai iopamidol administered at endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. The likely mechanism of this finding is transmural and transperitoneal absorption of enteral contrast medium and its significance as a sign of mesenteric ischaemia is discussed.
