Colonic pseudo-obstruction, which is characterized by repetitive episodes or continuous symptoms and signs of a bowel obstruction, is a rare disease that results in colorectal dilatation without any obstructing lesions. Cases with neuropathic chronic colonic pseudo-obstruction have rarely been reported in Korea. We report a case of neuropathic colonic pseudo-obstruction, which results in decreased number of interstitial cells of Cajal and hypoganglionosis, in a 50-year-old man with chronic constipation accompanied by megacolon.
