In brief: Inflamed rectum
Proctitis can be due a number of causes including infection (e.
g. Herpes, gonorrhea, ameba), ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease (ibd, crohn's usually relative sparing of rectum), poor blood flow (ischemic), damage from radiation treatment, reaction to noxious chemicals (soap suds enemas), and others. Rx depends on cause.
