Ischemic colitis - longitudinal
3 rating(s) (4 ø)

Strictly one-sided antimesenterial fibrinous ischemic colitis.

Pathogenesis

The decreased blood flow is usually not caused by an embolism or thrombosis, but rather by  arteriosclerosis of the arteries that supply the intestine. It mostly affects the left colon flexure. The patients are typically 60-80 years old.
