Phlebosclerotic colitis is a rare disease of intestinal ischemia and differentiating it from the typical ischemic colitis. It is caused by venous obstruction due to colonic and mesenteric venous calcification. We report a 36-year-old woman presenting with intermittent abdominal pain. Initial radiologic findings showed multiple tortuous thread-like calcifications in the region of the right side of the colon and transverse colon on plain abdominal radiographs and computed tomography images. In the colonoscopy, edematous dark-bluish colonic mucosa, sclerotic colon wall, and multiple ulcers without clear boundaries were observed from the ascending colon to the transverse colon. In the sigmoid colon only showed the edematous dark-bluish colonic mucosa, sclerotic colon wall. On the basis of these findings, we diagnosed the patient as having phlebosclerotic colitis. We report a rare case of phlebosclerotic colitis in healthy young woman.
