Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome in children.

Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome (SRUS) is rare in children. Few reported cases have undergone detailed investigations, treatments have been extremely varied and outcome poorly documented. We report two cases of SRUS in children, each with a different macroscopic pathology. The diagnosis was delayed in both cases. The importance of appropriate investigation and the need to tailor treatment to the type of lesion are emphasised. One case of SRUS was associated with a complete, full thickness rectal prolapse and symptoms improved after an abdominal sutured rectopexy. The other patient responded well to endoanal excision of polypoid lesions. The diagnosis and management of this condition in children deserves wider recognition.
