Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Ulcerative Colitis and Proctitis®

The physical and emotional effects of ulcerative colitis and ulcerative proctitis are explained in this informative handbook by two leading authorities in the field of gastroenterology. Ulcerative colitis is a recurrent, idiopathic inflammatory disorder involving the mucosa and submucosa of the colon, which has been reported in virtually every region of the world. Difficult to diagnose and treat effectively, the signs and symptoms of ulcerative colitis and ulcerative proctitis are reviewed in detail, and the recommended pharmaceutical and surgical treatments discussed. Because of the nature of these illnesses, the long-term adverse quality-of-life and psychological effects these diseases have on patients are also explored. Third edition; 168 pages.
