abstract

  • Fibrosing colonopathy represents a newly recognized gastrointestinal complication of cystic fibrosis. Affected persons have taken larger doses of pancreatic enzymes than similar patients with cystic fibrosis, and have bloody diarrhea. We developed a medical protocol that may avoid surgical resection of the colon in some of these patients.
