Abstract

    Stercoral colitis is rare and often fatal complication of constipation. Diagnosis of stercoral colitis is made in only 10% of patients before surgery. A 45-year-old female presented to the emergency department with abdominal pain and constipation. Computerized abdominal tomography was suitable with the diagnosis of stercoral colitis. Stercoral colitis  complications are  related to high mortality and morbidity. Early diagnosis and treatment should be started. We have presented a rare case of "stercoral colitis" and have observed the diagnosis and treatment methods in the light of literature information.
