  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 21-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of bloody diarrhea and abdominal pain. Colonoscopic examination disclosed erythematous and aphthous erosions from the rectum to splenic flexure and shallow ulcerative lesions on the Bauhin's valve. Histologic examination of the biopsy specimens of erythematous erolions in the sigmoid colon showed crypt abscesses, a decrease in the number of goblet cells, and infiltration of acute inflammatory cells. Barium enema showed small niches in the rectum, sigmoid and descending colon, and the edematous Bauhin's valve. A stool culture on the day of admission was positive for Cumpylobarter jejunii. He was diagnosed with Campylobacter colitis based on the colonoscopic examination and barium enema. He was rapidly improved with of loxacin. We believe that colonoscopic examination and barium enema are useful for diagnosis of infectious colitis.
