Salpingocolonic fistula secondary to diverticulitis.
Am Surg. 1996 Dec; 62(12):984-6.AS

Abstract

A rare diverticular fistula is reported in a 37-year-old woman. The case history and literature were reviewed for clinical presentation, radiologic investigations, and treatment options. Internal fistulas may complicate diverticular disease. The least common fistula is between the colon and the fallopian tube. Successful management of this complication is directed at removing the diseased colon. The woman had a salpingocolonic fistula secondary to diverticulitis. To our knowledge, she represents the youngest patient with this complication of diverticular disease in the literature. Diagnosis of a salpingocolonic fistula complicating diverticular disease requires clinical suspicion when genitourinary symptoms complicate the clinical presentation. Hysterosalpingography or contrast injection of percutaneous drainage tubes may contribute to the diagnosis.
