Abstract

Diarrhea after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can be life-threatening, and its etiology includes conditioning regimens, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), infections, and transplantation-associated microangiopathy (iTAM). Cord colitis syndrome (CCS) has been described as a syndrome of culture-negative and antibiotic-responsive persistent watery and non-bloody diarrhea of uncertain pathogenesis and occurs in umbilical cord blood transplantation (UCBT) recipients. We encountered a case similar to CCS that developed severe watery diarrhea after UCBT without any signs of GVHD or infection and responded well to metronidazole (MNZ) treatment. Since CCS is very rare, we herein describe a case of MNZ-effective diarrhea after UCBT.
