Abstract
Ischemic colitis is the most common form of ischemia in the gastrointestinal tract. It results from inadequate blood flow in the colon that leads to inflammation of the colon. Though this disease frequently affects the elderly with risk factors of ischemia, younger patients may be affected too. Several conditions such as major vascular occlusion, small vessel disease, shock, some medications, colonic obstructions and hematologic disorders can predispose individuals to ischemic colitis. Ischemic colitis following colonoscopy is rare. Here we report 2 cases of ischemic colitis which developed after colonoscopic procedures in patients without risk factors of ischemia.
