Abstract

The authors present the case of a male patient aged 51 years who, on the background of a chronic intoxication with lead, developed an acute, pseudo-obstructive dilatation of the colon. The diagnosis was established during surgery, and the therapeutic solution consisted in cecostomy with a favourable result. A synopsis is also presented, of the literature concerning this rarely encountered syndrome.
