Abstract

A patient with common variable immuno-deficiency disease is described with severe colitis confined to the rectosigmoid region. Inflammation was extensive in the regions involved and exhibited a character that we believe is most unusual. Inflammation was transmural in the regions involved. Macrophages were the major inflammatory cells, and no granulomas or giant cells were seen. Although the disorder seemed distinct from either ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease, the colitis responded favorably to oral azulfidine, prednisone, and to steroid enemas.
