Gastrocolic fistula is rarely described in the literature. It has been associated with a variety of diseases and recently with benign gastric ulcers related to the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs'). The present case represents the first report of gastrocolic fistula due to NSAIDs in a cirrhotic patient. This is in keeping with the established knowledge that cirrhotic patients constitute a high-risk group of patients when treated with NSAIDs'. Review of the literature shows that this condition warrants a complete diagnostic work-up to exclude more ominous underlined diseases.
