Ischemic colitis is the most common form of ischemic injury to the gastrointestinal tract and this frequently occurs in the elderly. It manifests with sudden, left lower abdominal pain, diarrhea and hematochezia. Radiologic modalities such as barium enema may be helpful in delineating the degree and location of ischemic colitis, but colonoscopy is the procedure of choice for making the diagnosis. Ischemic colitis generally runs a benign course lasting a few days and it requires only supportive treatment in most cases. Complications of ischemic colitis and recurrence are rare. We report here on a case of colonic stricture that was caused by ischemic colitis, and we include a brief review of the relevant literature. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2008;36:248-251)
