Abstract

Thromboembolic events are rare in the course of ulcerative colitis and related with the activity of the disease. These complications are especially seen in young patients and cause high mortality and morbidity. Arterial thrombotic complications are less frequent and are usually seen after a surgical procedure. Here, we present a 36-year-old man with active ulcerative colitis presenting via digital arterial thrombosis and digital necrosis that was not associated with a surgical procedure.
