Abstract

Collagenous colitis is a newly recognized diarrheal disorder of unknown etiology (1). Over 80% of patients are middle-aged women with no other known predisposing factors (2). We report unusual presentations of collagenous colitis in two men in whom there was closely linked use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs and antibiotics.
