This case involves a fifty-two-year-old woman who was admitted to the hospital due to complaints of bloody stool. Studies and samples were ordered which did not show any source for the bleed. A colonoscopy was performed which revealed blood throughout the colon. The patient appeared to have a pan-colonic diverticulosis. She underwent a placement of a venous catheter and a total abdominal colectomy, and an ileoproctostomy was performed. The surgery was completed and the patient appeared to be doing fine postoperatively. About one week after surgery, however, the patient developed a high fever. An exploratory laparotomy was ordered, as well as the drainage of an abscess. She was placed on moxifloxacin hydrochloride, but the patient died shortly thereafter because of multi-organ failure.
