Abstract

Children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis (CF) may manifest bowel pathology with resulting bowel obstruction. Recognized causes of bowel obstruction in CF patients include meconium ileus, intussusception, distal intestinal obstruction syndrome and postoperative adhesions. Additionally, the development of colonic strictures in children with CF has recently been described. We report an unusual cause of partial obstruction of the ascending colon in a child with CF due to pathologically proven diverticulitis.
