Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome in a teenaged boy.


Since the original description of solitary rectal ulcer by Cruveilheir in 1830, about 250 cases have been reported (1). The condition most frequently presents in adults between 30 and 50 years of age. There are very few pediatric case reports and none have come from North America. We report here a 13-year-old boy with solitary rectal ulcer syndrome and a review of the pediatric experience with this rare condition.
