PMID:  11374629     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Colonic involvement is an uncommon but potentially lethal complication of severe acute pancreatitis. The spectrum of colonic complications includes localized ileus with "pseudo-obstruction", obstruction, necrosis, hemorrhage, fistula, and ischemic colitis. We report on a patient who developed pancreatocolonic fistulization in the course of protracted severe acute pancreatitis. Emphasis is made on the computed tomographic and water soluble contrast enema findings.
