34 General and colorectal CASE 17: BRIGHT RED RECTAL BLEEDING History A 43-year-old man attends the surgical outpatient clinic complaining of intermittent bleeding per rectum for the past 2 months. The blood is always bright red, separate from the stool and drips into the pan. He also complains of itching around the anus. There is no other past medical history of note. Examination Abdominal examination is unremarkable. Rectal examination and proctoscopy shows internal haemorrhoids at the 3 and 7 o’clock positions.

However, 10 per cent of perforations will still not demonstrate free gas on an erect chest X-ray. A lateral decubitus radiograph can be taken if the diagnosis is unclear. If there is any diagnostic doubt then water-soluble contrast or computerized tomography (CT) may confirm the presence of a perforation. The patient requires prompt fluid resuscitation, with central venous pressure monitoring and hourly urine output measurements. Nasogastric intubation, broad-spectrum antibiotics and analgesia should also be given.

Acute cholecystitis can lead to a build up of infected bile within the gallbladder lumen, resulting in an empyema. The gallbladder can also become gangrenous, leading to perforation. Patients are at increased risk if they are diabetic, immunosuppressed, obese or have a haemoglobinopathy. Initial decompression may be accomplished under radiographic guidance or via intra-operative laparoscope-guided needle drainage. Elderly patients with significant comorbidities must be treated aggressively with antibiotics and early decompression, as the resulting sepsis can be life-threatening.
