This article focuses on a study related to prospective audit of the incidence of preparation colitis associated with sodium phosphate (NaP). NaP is a common and effective preparation for colonoscopy. However, it has been reported as causing transient mucosal ulcers of no clinical significance. PAC occurs in more than 3% of people receiving NaP preparation for colonoscopy. This can confuse clinical management if not recognized. The study concludes that all endoscopists using NaP must be aware of the features of PAC.
