High Resolution Images: Pseudomembranous Colitis in the Rectum
The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these "high resolution files" some larger images are displayed.
Just click on any image to get a magnification (and then click "Back" on Your browser). Click here to get back to the index page.
Pseudomembranous colitis (PMC) An inflammation in the wall of the large bowel, usually caused by Clostridium difficile and precipitaded during or after antibiotic treatment. The main symptoms are bloody diarrhea, fever and abdominal pain. Conservative treatment (including stopping the antibiotic treatment during which the disease has begun and treatment with metronidazol or vancomycin) is often effective. This disease can however sometimes be quite severe and surgical treatment can - however rarely - be needed.
