Amoebic perforation of bowel, the final and most serious manifestation of transmural amoebic colitis, is due to thrombotic occlusion of vessels supplying the segment of bowel with subsequent infarction and ischaemic necrosis. The ischaemic nature of the necrosis is confirmed by its shape and the demonstration of vascular thrombosis in the resected specimens of perforated amoebic colitis. Specimen angiography confirms the avascular area confined to the macroscopic lesions. Thrombotic occlusion and amoebic invasion of blood vessels have been demonstrated histologically. This new information suggests that amoebic perforation of the bowel is due to vascular compromise.
