Restorative proctocolectomy with ileoanal pouch anastomosis (IPAA) is currently the surgical treatment of choice for ulcerative colitis. Although dysplastic changes to the native ileal mucosa of the pouch occur in a subgroup of patients with severe chronic pouchitis, the development of cancer in the pouch itself is a very rare event. To date, only two cases of carcinoma of the IPAA have been reported, namely in patients operated on for colon cancer complicating ulcerative colitis and with a previous diagnosis of backwash ileitis.
