Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction (Ogilvie's syndrome) results in massive colonic dilation without mechanical obstruction. In most cases, a conservative treatment with or without endoscopic decompression is efficient. Rarely, surgery has to be performed. A surgical treatment is associated with high morbidity and mortality. However, a percutaneous endoscopic colostomy could be an interesting alternative treatment. We report the case of a 88-year-old female with colonic pseudo-obstruction for which both the conservative and the colonoscopic treatments were unsuccessful. A percutaneous endoscopic colostomy was performed, and symptomatic improvement was observed. We have shown that percutaneous endoscopic colostomy is a safe and effective treatment for acute colonic pseudo- obstruct. Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2007;34:151⁣155)
