Hey Trisha!

Proctitis refers to inflammation of the rectum and though commonly seen in ulcerative colitis it could be present in a few other conditions as well, especially when proctitis is the sole finding. However if you have previously been diagnosed with UC, the proctitis is likely to be associated. I would suggest discussing the possibility in detail with your treating gastroenterologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
