Abstract

We describe a case of phlegmonous colitis occurring in a 70-year-old man with liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma and acute promyelocytic leukemia. He developed an acute abdominal emergency and died during the first day of admission. Autopsy revealed a colon lesion characterized by suppurative inflammation associated with marked edema and hemorrhage in the submucosa. These findings were identical both macroscopically and microscopically to those of phlegmonous colitis. (Internal Medicine 34: 542-545, 1995).
