Abstract

We have observed five children with cystic fibrosis, who presented over 2 months, with meconium ileus equivalent that failed to respond to medical management. At surgery, four had a stricture in the ascending colon, and all had histopathological changes of post-ischaemic ulceration repair, with mucosal and submucosal fibrosis. The only common change in the management of these children was a switch from conventional enteric-coated pancreatic enzymes to high-strength products 12-15 months before presentation.
