A: Computed tomography (CT) revealed significant dilatation of gas in the colon in a 70-year-old man; B: CT dilated colon with a large amount of fecal content in a 51-year-old man; C: CT obvious dilation in the total colon in a 22-year-old girl; D: Enteroscopy revealed dilated sigmoid colon and barium retention in the sigmoid colon and rectum in the 70-year-old man; E: Enteroscopy dilated middle and upper rectum and narrow lower rectum in the 51-year-old man; F: Enteroscopy significant narrowing of the intestine 40 cm from the anus in the 22-year-old girl.
