Rectum Bleeding


Presentation

  • Alternatively, they may present with massive life-threatening hemorrhage.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pseudotumor
  • Enteritis due to Yersinia enterocolitica can take a pseudotumoral form and mislead the diagnosis of gastrointestinal bleeding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Gingival Hypertrophy
  • She had a bleeding mucocutaneous lesion in anal canal along with papullonodular lesions on the face, gingival hypertrophy and flexion contractures of small joints of hands and feet.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Angiomatosis
  • Although colorectal angiomatosis is uncommon, this association can lead to life-threatening complications because of acute or chronic bleeding.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Skin Papule
  • Hyalinization of various body tissues like skin, joints, and bones leads to development of skin papules, gingival hyperplasia, osteolytic lesions in bones, and joint contractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Papule
  • Hyalinization of various body tissues like skin, joints, and bones leads to development of skin papules, gingival hyperplasia, osteolytic lesions in bones, and joint contractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Flexion Contracture
  • She had a bleeding mucocutaneous lesion in anal canal along with papullonodular lesions on the face, gingival hypertrophy and flexion contractures of small joints of hands and feet.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Bivariate and multivariable logistic regression models examined factors associated with guideline-discordant workups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • In cases of failure, endoscopic therapy, mainly represented by argon plasma coagulation and hyperbaric oxygen treatments, are valid and complementary second-line treatment strategies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

Etiology

  • Among the different etiologies suggested for IRB, one of the most common is a hypersensitivity reaction of the bowel mucosa to digested antigens.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • In South Asia, which is home to over one fifth of the world's population, there is paucity of epidemiologic data on colorectal diseases, particularly in the lower-income countries such as Nepal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Epidemiology The incidence and prevalence of rectal bleeding in children are poorly documented. Certain causes such as anal fissure are common in general practice. Overall it is not a common presentation in children attending hospital.[patient.info]

Prevention

  • Awareness of this rare condition is important when investigating patients presenting with rectal bleeding to prevent unnecessary treatment and delay surgery. Prompt intervention is necessary to prevent severe rectal haemorrhage.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
