The patient was referred to the GI clinic.A proctosigmoidoscopy was conducted three days after the patient's discharge from the acute care clinic. Significant pseudopolyp formation could be seen. Biopsies of the colon revealed erosions of the mucosa and ulcerations into the submucosa with mixed acute (i.e., neutrophils) and chronic (lymphocytes and macrophages) inflammatory cells. No dysplastic cells suggesting the development of colon carcinoma were seen. No multinucleated giant cells suggesting Crohn disease were seen. Inflammation and ulceration were limited to the rectum and sigmoid colon only. Crypts of Lieberku¨hn were intensely inflamed. Marked hemorrhaging of capillaries in the mucosa was also observed.Pathologist's DiagnosisUlcerative colitisHealth Science Science Nursing NURSING PNP401
