Two years before the appearance of distal peripheral manifestations of thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's disease), a young man had acute peritonitis attributable to an ischemic perforation of the sigmoid colon. Only the histological examination of excised tissue was able to differentially diagnose this entity unambiguously.

Colon Ischemia Associated with Buerger's Disease: Case Report and Review of the Literature.
Two cases of colon ischemia in patients who were previously diagnosed with lower-extremity Buerger's disease are described, one of which revealed abrupt occlusion of the inferior mesenteric artery with numerous collateral vessels, just like the corkscrew appearance found in the extremities. Expand
