Caption: Clinical photograph of a resected section of human gut affected by ulcerative colitis, showing a dense pattern of rounded ulcers. Colitis is a general term for inflammation of the colon, symptoms of which include diarrhoea & abdominal pain. The rectum may also be involved. Its cause is obscure; food allergies or an infective agent have been considered. Ulcerative colitis tends to begin in early adult life, progressing through periods of remission & relapses of varying severity. Attacks are treated with steroids (prednisolone), but recurrent or severe disease, which is associated with colonic cancer, may require surgery.
