Caption: Stained colon. Endoscopic view of the darkly stained (pigmented) surface of the colon (large intestine) of a patient with melanosis coli. This condition is caused by prolonged use (or abuse) of laxative drugs, used to treat constipation. These drugs contain Anthraquinone, a pigment extracted from coal tar, which stains the lining of the colon. The condition is benign and reversible.
