In brief: Localized disease
Ulcerative proctitis refers to a chronic inflammatory disease of the colon, localized to the rectum. It can progress to involve the entire colon.
The cause is not known and there are likely environmental and genetic factors. It is generally easy to treat with suppositories or oral medications. The main symptoms are bleeding, diarrhea, and the constant urge to defecate.
