“Introduction Non-occlusive colonic ischaemia is a recognized albeit rare entity related to low blood flow within the visceral circulation. Post-traumatic shock-associated colonic ischaemia has been previously reported in young, healthy patients and has involved primarily the right colon in most instances [1–5]. Only a few cases of extensive non-occlusive colonic gangrene have been reported [6–10].
