Abstract

We describe a case of a perforated colon secondary to a virtual colonoscopy in an 81-year-old female with ulcerative colitis. She underwent an emergent right hemicolectomy. The pathologic findings were described as ulcerative colitis with full-thickness perforation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first complication from a virtual colonoscopy reported in the literature.
