Worldwide, methamphetamine (ie, "crystal meth") abuse is increasing, and is especially prevalent in rural America. However, ischemic colitis secondary to methamphetamine abuse has rarely been reported. We describe the case of a young man who presented with signs and symptoms suggestive of ischemic colitis.
