Toxic megacolon is usually a complication of inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis and, more rarely, Crohns disease, and some infections of the colon. Other forms of megacolon exist and can be congenital (present since birth, such as Hirschsprung's disease).
Signs and Symptoms
Tachycardia (rapid heart rate)
There may be signs of septic shock. A physical examination reveals abdominal tenderness and possible loss of bowel sounds. An abdominal radiography shows colonic dilation. There is usually an elevated white blood cell count. Severe sepsis may present with hypothermia or leukopenia.
If the condition does not improve, there is a significant risk of death. In case of poor response to conservative therapy a colectomy is usually required. This may involve all or part of the colon being removed, with the resulting option of anastomosis or colostomy. Colostomy carries far less risk of infection and post-operative complications because the risk of deterioration of sutures within the intestinal tract (as a result of anastomosis) is not present. The risk of death and shock has been reported to be lower in children, however most children required colectomy in one case-control study.
