Typhilitis, also called necrotizing colitis, cecitis, ileocecal syndrome and neutropenic enterocolitis, is an inflammatory condition of large intestines. In this condition, individuals with weak immune system develop inflammation of caecum, a part of large intestines. The cause of typhilitis is still unknown. However, this condition occurs in individuals who undergo intensive chemotherapy. Chemotherapy weakens their immune system. Any damage to large intestines leads to inflammation of caecum. The symptoms of typhilitis typically involve inflammatory symptoms such as fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating and stomach ache. The complications of typhilitis are bowel perforation, peritonitis, intestinal bleeding, intestinal obstruction, intra-abdominal abscess and sepsis.
