Kuldeepsingh Dodmani, Bharat Kumar, Umesh Kulkarni, Unmesh Takalkar

Background & Objective Per rectal (PR) bleeding is a common reason for hospitalization and is defined as bleeding that emanates from a source distal to the ligament of Treitz. Although bleeding ceases spontaneously in 80 % cases, 25 % risk of re-bleed persists along with a difficulty of identifying the bleeding source. The purpose of this paper was to investigate the diagnostic yield of colonoscopy and assess the detection rate of different lesions in patients with PR bleeding as seen in our hospital. Methods Fifty adult patients with PR bleed, irrespective of their gender were selected from general medical OPD and general medical wards. All patients were subjected to fibre-optic colonoscopy after necessary preparation and findings were recorded. Biopsies taken from suspected lesions were clinically indicated. Results Study population included 50 patients, 28 males (56 %) and 22 females (44 %) with a mean age of 47.1618.08 years. Findings at colonoscopy were, hemorrhoids (48 %), polyp (6 %), growth (6 %), diverticular disease (6 %), ulceration (4 %), fissure (2 %), fistula (2 %), inflammatory bowel disease i.e., IBD (2 %) and telangiectasia (2 %). Normal findings were reported in 22 % cases. Conclusion Colonoscopy has very high diagnostic yield and would be recommended in the workup of patients presenting with bleeding per rectum.
