For patients with severe corrosive injury of the esophagus and stomach, the colon is considered a well-functional and durable esophageal substitute. We report a Chinese male suffered from chemical colitis of the colon conduit located in the posterior mediastinum after drinking strong liquor. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature. After conservative and supportive therapy with antibiotics and oral fasting, he recovered from chemical conduit colitis completely.
