Collagenous colitis (CC) is a disease that causes chronic diarrhea, that could be diagnosed with a normal colonoscopic examination. Diagnosis is based on the histopathologic examination of the mucosa containing thickened subepithelial collagen layer (1). Etiology and pathophsiology of CC are not known exactly (2). In this article, the first case with CC and CI (Collagenous ileitis) associated with duloxetine [Serotonin norephinefrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI)] treatment for major depres- sion is presented.
