Abstract

A retrospective study of ten patients suggests a possible causal relationship between the thrombogenic properties of estrogen-containing drugs and ischemic colitis, a disease entity believed to be related to occlusion of small blood vessels. We also emphasize that ischemic colitis is a disease limited not only to the elderly, and that it should be included in the differential diagnosis of colitis with bleeding in younger patients.
