ABSTRACT
The article presents the case of a 44-year-old man who was diagnosed with distal ulcerative colitis (UC) when he had hematochezia at age 34. Colonoscopy revealed the appendiceal orifice inflammation (AOI) with reddish and friable mucosa and mucopus. Clinical evidence has shown the protective role of appendicectomy on UC.
