malignant fistula

malignant fistula

A fistula that typically develops between two loops of large bowel, when a large colorectal carcinoma extends to the serosal surface of one loop of bowel and continues growing onto the surface of a second loop of bowel. Central necrosis of the two tumour masses results in a fistula between the loops.
