Methamphetamine abuse has increased rapidly in the United States over the last few years. Besides socioeconomic hardships acquired from using the drug, there are several adverse medical outcomes. Although there have been many reports of cardiovascular and central nervous system toxicities, there are few case reports of bowel ischemia induced by the drug. We report an unusual case of methamphetamine-associated intestinal infarction.
