Abstract [sv]

Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome (SRUS) is a rare disorder likely to be caused by a traumatic and ischemic mucosal injury related to latent or overt rectal prolapse. Mucosal damage can vary between erythema and up to intractable ulceration. The typical symptoms of SRUS may resemble those of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)-related proctitis or rectal malignancy with mucus- and blood-mixed defecation with urgency and sometimes transient incontinence. The purpose of this paper is to raise awareness of this rare, quality-of-life impacting and difficult-to-treat disease and the not so well-known argon plasma coagulation (APC) treatment that can provide very good and long lasting symptom relief.
