Abstract: ULCERATIVE colitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by diffuse mucosal inflammation involving the rectum and extending proximally to involve all or part of the colon. A step-up approach for medical therapy is routinely applied, from 5-aminosalicylic acid (ASA) compounds, corticosteroids, immunomodulators, and biologics.1 Thrombosis, mainly venous, is a rare and well-recognized extra-intestinal manifestation of inflammatory bowel disease.2 In this article, we report the use of thrombolytic and antithrombotic therapy for the venous thrombosis in a 55-year-old male patient with refractory and active ulcerative colitis with excellent outcome.

Key words: venous thrombosis, refractory ulcerative colitis, active ulcerative colitis
