Introduction: Microscopic colitis is an inflammatory GI condition whereby patients present predominantly with chronic watery diarrhea associated with other non-specific symptoms such as abdominal pain, urgency, fecal incontinence, weight loss, arthralgia, myalgia, anxiety, depression, and fatigue, which negatively impact their quality of life.
Case Presentation: We present a case of a 44 -year old female with a history of hypothyroidism and celiac disease who presented to the GI clinic with a history of more than ten diarrhea episodes per day along with mild abdominal pain and bloating.
Conclusion: A colonoscopy was performed, and a random colon biopsy revealed collagenous/microscopic colitis.
