Solitary ulcer syndrome of the rectum in children.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City.


We present two children with solitary ulcer syndrome of the rectum (SUSR): a 7-year-old and an 11-year-old. Although well recognized in the adult literature, the pediatric experience with this condition is limited. We review the clinicopathologic features of SUSR with emphasis on the pediatric experience. Greater awareness of this syndrome by both the pediatrician and pathologist may lead to more diagnosed cases in children.
