A thirty-two-year-old male presented with abdominal pain and rectal bleeding due to ischemic colitis. Inferior mesenteric vein thrombosis was documented angiographically. No predisposing factors for thrombosis were found. The natural course of the disease was documented with fiberoptic endoscopy. The pathological changes which account for the radiologic alterations were documented.
