Resumen

RAMIREZ RODRIGUEZ, Nelson  y  PACHECO CORRALES, Anika. Ulcerative colitis. A case report. Rev. bol. ped. [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.3, pp. 155-158. ISSN 1024-0675.

Ulcerative colitis is a chronic non granulomatous inflammation that affects mainly the colon. It is characterized by inflammation and ulceration of the intestinal mucosa. The etiology and pathogenesis is complex and due to several factors. Gastrointestinal symptoms depend on the location, size and severity of the inflammation. Diagnosis is based upon clinical examination supported by laboratory studies. Treatment depends on the severity of the case. We present the history of a child that showed a very severe case of ulcerative colitis who responded favorably to prescribed treatment.

Palabras clave : Ulcerative colitis; gastroenteritis; chronic intestinal disease.
