Pseudopolyposis of the colon is a well-recognized local complication of ulcerative colitis. Giant pseudopolyposis is uncommon, and its presentation as a complete obstruction of the colon is a rare occurrence. We report such a case, where retrograde flow of barium on double-contrast barium enema was completely obstructed at midtransverse colon. After resection by total abdominal colectomy, pathology examination ofthe specimen confirmed massive pseudopolyposis without malignancy. A brief review of the pathology and current literature is presented.
