Evaluation of acute proctitis


JAMA 244(4): 358-359
Evaluation of acute proctitis
Acute proctitis is a nonspecific disease secondary to many specific causes. These include ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, enteric infections, venereal disease, antibiotics, ischemia, and radiation therapy. Clinicians should avoid making a diagnosis until appropriate tests such as sigmoidoscopy, rectal biopsy, and stool analysis have been done.
