Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Megacolon is an abnormal dilatation of the colon (a part of the large intestines). The dilatation is often accompanied by a paralysis of the peristaltic movements of the bowel. In more extreme cases, the feces consolidate into hard masses inside the colon, called fecalomas (literally, fecal tumor), which can require surgery to be removed.
