ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 27-year-old Asian-American woman who suffered from constipation, rectal bleeding and abdominal pain. A colonoscopy showed inflammatory polyps in the rectal vault, and biopsy revealed polypoid hyperplastic mucosa with ulceration. Although treatment with laxatives and biofeedback improved the patient's condition, it was not totally resolved, and a follow-up sigmoidoscopy was scheduled.
