Granulomatous colitis (GC) is a rare, breed-specific inflammatory bowel disease of young Boxer dogs. GC has been refractory to treatment and associated with high mortality rates, but culture-independent molecular analysis has transformed therapy and prognosis by uncovering a correlation between GC and Escherichia coli invasion within colonic mucosal macrophages. GC-associated invasive E coli are similar to a newly identified E coli pathotype, "adherent and invasive E coli," that are increasingly associated with Crohn's disease in humans. Successful treatment of GC requires antimicrobials that are effective against E coli and penetrate intracellularly. Enrofloxacin is widely regarded as the antibiotic of choice.
