The 86-year-old patient experienced acute colitis temporally related to the intake of the drug with complete resolution of symptoms on levodopa withdrawal. Awareness of the possibility of a levodopa-related damage on colon biopsies performed for acute colitis is of paramount importance for pathologists. However, in order to exclude or confirm a drug-related damage an effective communications between clinicians and pathologists is always required.
