Pediatric Rectal Bleeding

  • Andrew M. Davidoff

Abstract

Pediatric patients with rectal bleeding can be divided into four groups where etiology varies by patient age: neonates (<1 month), infants (1 month — 2 years), toddlers (2–5 years) and older children (> 5 years). Etiology also varies according to quality and quantity of bleeding. Gross blood, dark blood mixed with stool, streaks of bright red blood or occult blood may have different causes.
