INTRODUCTION

Ischaemic colitis results from a chronic or acute drop in the blood supply to the bowel and accounts for 6%–18% of the causes of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Diabetes mellitus, hypotension, advanced age, aortic surgery and peripheral vascular disease have also been suggested to be predisposing factors for ischaemic colitis. In this report, we present a case of ischaemic colitis in haemodialysis with a good response to conservative treatment.
