Signs of CCP include rectal bleeding, mucorrhea, diarrhea, and colonic obstruction, similar to other associated disorders.[sup][3] CCP is associated with a variety of ulcerating diseases including inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis [UC] and Crohn's disease), infectious colitis, rectal prolapse, solitary rectal ulcer, and diverticulitis, among others.[sup][4],[5],[6] CCP can resemble adenoma, adenocarcinoma, lipoma, endometriosis, neurofibroma, pseudopolyps, and pneumatosis coli.[sup][7] However, the etiology of CCP is not yet well-defined.
