抄録

A female in her 50s with a four-year history of myotonic dystrophy was admitted to our hospital with hematochezia. She was diagnosed with synchronous colonic cancer of the transverse and sigmoid colon, for which she underwent partial transverse and sigmoid colectomy, respectively. Postoperative respiratory failure resulted in prolonged stay in the intensive care unit. Her liver and renal function gradually deteriorated, and she eventually died from these sequelae on postoperative day 26. Intraoperative liver biopsy revealed cirrhosis arising from non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Although myotonic dystrophy is believed to be a multisystem disease, its association with cirrhosis has not been reported in Japan. We therefore report this rare case of liver cirrhosis arising from NASH in a patient with myotonic dystrophy.
