Intestinal infarction is a pathology due to acute circulation disorders that lead to necrosis of the intestinal loops.
The symptomatology is not specific and this makes difficult an early diagnosis and therefore the prognosis.
Only arteriography allow a correct diagnosis.
The loops necrotic must be removed by large or short resections.
Only sometimes a revascularization is possible.
A clinical case of intestinal infarction in a patient with cancer of the hepatic flexure is reported. The usefulness of a correct nutritional therapy in these patients that, after large intestinal resection often develops short bowel syndrome, is underlined.
