"Pouchitis" is an inflammation of the ileal pouch that has been described as occurring after Kock's procedure--the continent ileal pouch. The case presented herein demonstrates clinical and histological features that resemble ulcerative colitis, implying that this disorder may be a recurrence of the patient's original inflammatory bowel disease and not merely a local and nonspecific process as previously suggested.
