• We report a case of gastrocolic fistula resulting from a benign gastric ulcer, diagnosed by barium meal and endoscopy. The fistula healed with conservative management and treatment with carbenoxolone sodium. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of successful conservative treatment of a benign gastrocolic fistula using carbenoxolone.
