Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an inflammatory bowel disease characterized by waxing and waning inflammation that changes in severity and extent and may progress to neoplasia, especially in the presence of strictures. When patients have nonnegotiable strictures or severe inflammation with ulcers, colonoscopy is difficult and carries the risk of perforation. The authors present a patient with pan-UC with multiple strictures, in whom fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography was used to noninvasively evaluate the extent and severity of the disease.
