Presented is a middle‐aged male who developed a fulminant case of antibiotic‐associated pseudomembranous colitis characterized by leukocytosis, hypoal‐buminemia, ascites, and anasarca without toxic mega‐colon. The patient responded slowly to medical therapy consisting of intravenous metronidazole, oral vancomycin, and parenteral nutrition. Subsequently, cholestyramine was administered.
