Massive lower gastrointestinal bleeding associated with solitary rectal ulcer in a patient with Behçet’s disease
AbstractSolitary rectal ulcer syndrome is a rare benign disorder that has a wide range of clinical presentations and variable endoscopic fi ndings which makes it diffi cult to diagnose and treat. The clinical and endoscopic picture in this condition can also mimic malign ulceration, malignancy or Crohn’s disease. Behçet’s disease can affect the gastrointestinal tract. However to the best of our knowledge, no case with solitary rectal ulceration has been reported so far in literature. We herein present a patient diagnosed with Behçet’s disease admitted to our clinic with rectal bleeding due to solitary rectal ulceration.
