Large bowel obstruction mimicking colon cancer is a rare complication of acute or chronic pancreatitis. We present a case of a 42-year-old male patient with chronic alcoholic pancreatitis presenting with abdominal distension for two months. Computed tomography showed an obstructive mass-like stricture at the proximal descending colon. A diverting transverse colostomy was done followed by serial pancreatic duct stenting. The colonic stricture resolved after six months of treatment.
