Abstract

The case of a 73-year-old man who developed acute colonic pseudoobstruction (Ogilvie's syndrome) following chemotherapy for lymphoma is reported. Cecal dilatation resolved after a single colonoscopic decompression. Following his next course of chemotherapy, colonic dilatation again developed. The recurrence was treated successfully by introducing a fenestrated colonoscopic overtube transanally for continous decompression. The literature concerning acute, colonic pseudo-obstruction is reviewed. The colonoscopic overtube is a convenient and effective treatment for recurrent colonic distention
