Three cases of colonic stricture associated with acute pancreatitis are reported. Colonic stricture is an unusual complication of acute pancreatitis. In two of the cases colonic stricture resolved on conservative treatment, as it was probably secondary to edema and spasm. Pericolic fibrosis and fixation may produce a lesion which on barium enema may resemble colon carcinoma ('apple-core lesion').
