What’s the problem?
There are several complications of ulcerative proctitis. With increased irritation to the anal and rectal areas, hemorrhoids may occur but abscesses or fistulae are uncommon. Extra-intestinal manifestations such as inflammation of the eyes, enlarged joints, and certain skin rashes may occur but the incidence of these is rare. Patients with ulcerative proctitis are not any greater risk for developing colorectal cancer than those without this disease.
Other possible complications include (but are not limited to):
- Severe bleeding
- Perforated colon
- Severe dehydration
- Liver disease
- Inflammation of the skin, joints and eyes
- An increased risk of colon cancer
- Toxic megacolon
