Undiagnosed rectal bleeding can pose a significant problem in the pediatric patient. A systematic and logical approach to the work-up of the child with rectal bleeding is necessary for prompt and accurate diagnosis. It is our impression that the addition of colonoscopy in carefully selected patients will decrease the number of children with undiagnosed significant rectal bleeding.
