Abstract: A 39-year-old woman with inflammatory bowel disease was admitted to the hospital because of cramping abdominal pain and diarrhea. Ultrasound of the abdomen revealed thickening of the wall of the descending colon. At endoscopy mucosa-covered nodules with substenosis were seen. A double-contrast examination showed narrowing in the transition zone between the descending colon and sigmoid with mucosal nodularities and barium spots in between. Examination of the resection specimen revealed colitis cystica profunda. After surgical treatment the history of the patient was uneventful.
