Hydrogen peroxide colitis: a report of three patients.


We have seen three patients with acute ulcerative colitis after hydrogen peroxide enemas. The colitis is probably the result of the explosive entrance of gas into the loose connective tissues of the mucosa and submucosa of the rectum and sigmoid. Fortunately, it is transitory in nature, but it should be distinguished from ulcerative, ischemic, or pseudomembranous colitis.
