Abstract:
Arterial thrombosis is rare in ulcerative colitis (UC). Our case report described a triad of arterial emboli in a UC patient who presented with bilateral lower limb claudication associated acute chest pain, confusion, ataxia and diplopia. Investigations confirmed bilateral femoral and popliteal artery occlusion, occipital infarct and a sub-endocardial infarct secondary to embolic disease.
