  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 48-year-old female visited our hospital with a chief complaint of intermittent bloody stools. Past and family histories were unremarkable. History of the present illness included bloody stools twice or three times per year for the past 22 years. The symptom increased in frequency and she was admitted for further examination. Laboratory findings were unremarkable except for an accelerated ESR, a positive CRP, and a high γ-grobulin. Barium enema examination of the terminal ileum and colon, and endoscopic examination revealed longitudinal ulcers and small ulcers at the terminal ileum, and reddish mucosa with slight elevation in the cecum-ascending colon. The ulcers were resistant to various medical treatment, and a surgical treatment was undertaken. Macroscopic and microscopic findings of the resected specimen were not comparable to any groups of identifiable illness. Thus, enterocolitis in this patient seemed to fall within an unclassified group.
