Abstract: Phlegmonous enterocolitis is a rarely encountered and almost universally fatal bacterial infection seen most often in the alcoholic population. Despite being first described in 1842, fewer than 60 cases have been reported. The role of surgical management in this condition is unknown. We present a case of phlegmonous enterocolitis with a successful outcome after total colectomy.
