A patient with genetic hemachromatosis presented with a clinical picture suggesting malignancy and CT evidence of lesions in the right colon and liver. Colonoscopy failed to confirm the suspected diagnosis. Blood and stool cultures were positive for yersinia enterocolittica infection. This case illustrates the need to confirm clinically and radiologically suspected malignancy. It also serves as a model of how localized gastrointestinal pathology can result from the interaction of host genetic factors and specific microbial species. © The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.
