Abstract

Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome is a rare disorder of childhood and usually goes unrecognised or misdiagnosed because it can mimic various other rectal entities. Here a 9-year old boy presented with bleeding per rectum and altered bowel habits. Colonoscopy revealed multiple ulcers which on histopathological examination showed features of SRUS with severe reactive changes of regeneration mimicking malignancy.
