Abstract

Abstract

Two cases of chagasic megacolon associated with colon cancer are reported. This is the first communication with complete clinical details of this association. Our two cases presented tumors (adenocarcinomas) in a nondilated segment of the transverse colon. The associated tumor lesions were diagnosed by a barium enema. Both patients had a typical clinical epidemiology and history of chagasic megacolon.
