Description

A rare occurrence of primary adenocarcinoma arising in an interposed colon nearly seven years after the surgery is described. Remarkably, there were no symptoms from a large mass in the transposed bowel. Diagnosis was made fortuitously while searching for the cause of the patient's iron-deficiency anemia. The rationale for careful preoperative screening of the colonic segment intended for transplant to exclude pre-existing pathology is reemphasized. The various methods of evaluating the postoperative colon graft and their advantages and limitations are discussed.
