Abstract

Ischemic colitis is the most common type of ischemic gastrointestinal disease. It is a medical condition in which inflammation and injury of the large intestine results from inadequate blood supply. Ischemic colitis mainly occurs in elderly patients and encompasses a wide clinical spectrum. A case of ischemic colitis after snake bite with DIC was first reported by Iwakiri et al in 1995; another case, in Korea, was reported by Kim et al in 2008. Here we report a case in Korea of ischemic colitis after snake bite without DIC.
