A case of a young girl is presented. The main concern was recurrent rectal prolapse not responding to conservative and sclerotherapy. Colonoscopy showed diffuse colitis with superficial ulcerations and pseudopolyps. Colon biopsies finally showed classical features of malakoplakia confirmed by histopathological test. Conservative treatment failed and ultimately proctocolectomy was performed with ileoanal endorectal anastomosis.
