Intestinal vasculitis is an infrequent entity in the absence of systemic vasculitis or chronic inflammatory bowel disease. The primary involvement of gut restricted to mesenteric venous territory is exceedingly rare. We report a pseudotumoural lesion of the cecum caused by localized phlebitis and venulitis associated with thrombosis, with a putative immune etiology, in a young adult presenting with obstructive intestinal crisis. © 2009 Elsevier GmbH.
