De Novo Diagnosis of Lymphocytic Colitis After SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination. ACG case reports journal Lee, P., Wei, M. T., Gubatan, J., Forgó, E., Berry, G. J., Verma, R., Friedland, S. 2022; 9 (9): e00849

Abstract

SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines are safe and effective for most patients. Gastrointestinal complications reported after vaccination have included gastroparesis and inflammatory bowel disease flares. In this study, we present a unique case of lymphocytic colitis that occurred in a healthy middle-aged man after Moderna SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination. This reveals an unexpected complication of a mRNA vaccine that presented as worsening diarrhea after vaccination in a dose-dependent pattern. Caregivers should be aware of lymphocytic colitis as a possible complication of the Moderna vaccine and monitor those patients closely for symptom resolution.
