Ischemic colitis is an uncommon disease in Korea, but nowadays, the incidence of this disease is increasing in Korea. The reason is that the number of old patients is increasing and colonoscopic diagnosis is performed more frequently. It is especially important to differentiate it from other inflammatory bowel disease, such as infectious colitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and drug-induced colitis, because ischemic colitis is similar to other inflammatory bowel disease in symptoms and colonoscopic findings. However, the authors were able to differentiate ischemic colitis from other inflammatory bowel disease by close examination of a patient's history, microscopic examination and culture studies of the bacteria in the stool, and close observation of the changes in the colonoscopic findings with time. We experienced six cases of ischemic colitis and report them along with a brief review of the literature.
