19 year old female - Had colonoscopy a week ago after bleeding on/off with normal stool since November and a bout of bloody diarhhea in April that lasted a few days. Photos showed ulceration in descending colon and ulcers in the Ilium. Pathology results revealed acute irritation with increased eosinophils. Did not look like chronic colitis, Crohns disease or ulcerative colitis, although possible it's an early presentation. It looks like "acute colitis" which could be from an infection or possibly an allergy-like disorder.
Other past history: Positive ANA 1:1280 (no other tests supporting lupus), Low IgA 43 (66-344), Hemoglobin normal, CBC shows normal WBC and normal RBC but high Segs 89 (35-65%) and low Lymphs 9 (23-53%) and low ABS Lymbhs .76 (1.2-5.4 K/uL)
Puzzled where to go from here. Gastro. says we can stry a short course of seroids vs. treating for an allergic type discorder with medicine Gastrochrom????
