Evaluation of acute proctitis

, : Evaluation of acute proctitis. JAMA 244(4): 358-359

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.
