• 72/M patient has come to us with c/o increased stool frequency and bleeding per rectum for last few months with some wt loss. Recent CT Scan showed a possibility of mass in the rectum with nodes.
  • Ileo-Colonoscopic findings are suggestive of active ulcerative colitis affecting the recto sigmoid up to around 5 cms from the anal verge with large sessile lesion.
  • Rectal EUS was then performed with a radial echo endoscope, which revealed essentially mucosal lesion limited to the muscularis mucosa.
  • EMR (endoscopic mucosal resection) was then carried out with saline adrenaline injection followed by resection with snare and cautery. Complete resection was ensured and haemostasis was secured.
  • Resected specimen was retrieved and sent for HPE which was diagnosed as adenocarcinoma.
