The Brown Bowel Syndrome is characterised by degeneration and pigmentation of large bowel mucosa. We present a report of this unusual syndrome in which, for the first time, a functional deficit, reflected in a reduced internal and sphincter tone, is documented. This abnormality was reversed following sub-total colectomy and vitamin E therapy.
