Abstract

Colonic wall redundancy (CWR) is a condition often seen in adult cystic fibrosis patients, but the imaging features of this condition are poorly described in the literature. Recognizing the radiological presentation of CWR is important because this condition can be confused with acute or acquired colonic diseases that can require specific treatment. We present two cases of CWR evaluated with ultrasound, 64-multidetector CT scan, and magnetic resonance.
