Solitary ulcer of the rectum, A report of fiteen cases



Solitary ulcer of the rectum, A report of fiteen cases



Medical Journal of Australia 1(Sp2): 21-23



Fifteen cases of solitary ulcer of the rectum are described. The patients complained mainly of rectal bleeding, discomfort and passage per rectum of mucus. The lesion is most commonly situated on the anterior wall of the rectum and can be red and granular, nodular or ulcerating. Peolapse was found in nine cases. The histological lesion is similar to that seen in rectal prolapse. The condition can be mistaken for colitis, adenomatous polyp or carcinoma. Reassurance, defaecation reeducation and dealing with the patients'emotional problems alleviated the condition in some cases. Surgery to remove a prolapsing segment was performed in one case only.
