Abstract

Chronic ulcerative non-granulomatous ileo-jejunitis is characterized by diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal pain, steatorrhea and fever. Small bowel mucosa shows mutiple ulcers and villous atrophy which looks similar to celiac disease. However, these patients do not respond to gluten-free diets. The prognosis generally is reported to be poor, and response to steroids is variable. In the reported litrature, the disease has been found only in the small bowel. We report a case of this disease with colonic involvement. The colonic and small bowel mucosa was involved with a diffuse ulcerative process, and the whole langth of the small bowel was involved. She was started on prednisone 12 months ago, with complete relief of diarrhea and abdominal pain.
