Case Reports

Summary

A case is reported in which a lesion of the transverse colon was caused by acute pancreatitis. A deformity in the hepatic flexure of the transverse colon was noted from barium-enema examination and it simulated a segmental ulcerative colitis or a carcinoma. This deformity was attributed to an inflammatory mass with fat necrosis, which resulted from corrosive enzymes released from the pancreas.
