gastrointestinal bleeding from idiopathic ileocolonic varices: a case report
Varices of the colon are a rare
cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding, usually associated with portal
hypertension due to liver cirrhosis or other causes of portal venous
obstruction. Idiopathic colonic varices are extremely rare. Recognition of this
condition is important as idiopathic colonic varices may be a cause of
recurrent lower gastrointestinal bleeding.
We report the case of a
21-year-old Asian man from north India who presented with recurrent episodes of
lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Colonoscopy revealed varices involving the
terminal ileum and colon to the sigmoid. Thorough evaluation was undertaken to
rule out any underlying portal hypertension. Our patient underwent subtotal
colectomy including resection of involved terminal ileum and an ileorectal
Colonic varices are an uncommon
cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Idiopathic colonic varices are
diagnosed after excluding underlying liver disease and portal hypertension.
Recognition of this condition is important as prognosis is good in the absence
of liver disease and is curable by resection of the involved bowel.
