Perforation of the terminal ileum: A possible complication of nicorandil therapy

Academic Article


  • Recent reports have implicated nicorandil as a possible causative agent in the pathogenesis of anal and oral ulceration. We report a case of ulceration and perforation of the terminal ileum in a patient taking nicorandil. The possibility of an association between nicorandil therapy and gastrointestinal ulceration is discussed.
