Abstract

We report the case of a man in his 50s who was diagnosed with Crohn's colitis in his 30s and who pres ented with post-prandial lower abdominal pain in January. 2OXX. Colonoscopy and abdominal contraste nhanced computed tomography revealed abscesses around the signioid colon. Although his response to ant ibiotics was p(x)r. treatment with a coinbinatio, of antibiotics and adalimumab resolved the abscesses. Nine months later, however, the abscesses around the sigmoid colon recurred. Treatment comprising bowel rest and antibiotics led to immediate improvement of the symptoms. Ve report a case of effective anti-tumor nec rosis factor-ct therapy in Crohn's colitis with abscesses around the siginoid colon.
