Case of advanced colon cancer after colostomy closure

, : Case of advanced colon cancer after colostomy closure. Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer & ChemoTherapy 40(12): 2071-2073

We report a case of advanced colon cancer after closure of a colostomy. A 77-year-old man suddenly began experiencing abdominal pain and pan-peritonitis due to perforate diverticulum of the sigmoid colon. A Hartmann operation was urgently performed, and closure of the colostomy was performed 6 months later. The patient had no history of colonoscopy. Colonoscopy was performed 45 months after the closure of the colostomy to examine the colon. Advanced colon cancer was detected near the anastomotic region. In conclusion, older patients, including those with numerous disease complications such as diabetes and hypertension, should undergo early colonoscopy as a preventative measure.
