Abstract

A case report of thermal burns of the rectum and colon in a 94-year-old woman. The thermal lesions were caused by a scalding water enema. Flexible sigmoidoscopy was useful in documenting the extension of the lesions and histology was helpful in documenting the diagnosis. The authors review the enema's complications.
