Lymphogranuloma venereum as a cause of rectal stricture.


with rectal strictures are uncommon. Diagnostic evaluation is carried out with the purpose of differentiating them from the common causes of rectal stricture (including inflammatory bowel disease and malignant disease). There are few reports describing rectal stricture as a late complication of chronic proctitis associated with lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) infection. We present a case of a patient with a rectal stricture caused by LGV to illustrate the diagnostic approach and treatment of this rare condition.
