summary/abstract:

Colonoscopy in a 23-year-old woman to evaluate her for familial adenomatous polyposis syndrome revealed thousands of colonic adenomas. A few hours after the procedure, the patient had a bowel movement followed by a massive, full-thickness, rectosigmoid prolapse (A). The prolapsed segment of the colon showed no signs of ischemia. The patient was placed in the left lateral position and was sedated with 4 mg midazolam given intravenously. The prolapsed colon was manually reduced with gentle maneuvers.
