Abstract
The term "obstructive colitis" refers to ulceroinflammatory lesions occurring in the colon proximal to a completely or partially obstructing lesion. It has been referred to by various terms in the literature. This entity differs from the carcinoma of the colon that complicates true ulcerative colitis where there is involvement distal to the neoplasm as well as proximal to it. Although it has appeared in the literature over several decades, it remains an uncommon and troublesome disease. In Yonsei University Medical Center, for 11 years from January 1996 to December 2006 we encountered seven patients with obstructing colorectal carcinoma complicated by obstructive colitis. Here we report our cases to share our experience and to review the literature to facilitate the recognition and proper management of this rare disease entity
