Abstract

Lower intestinal bleeding in the elderly is a common problem with numerous and varied causes. Its diagnosis and treatment require a careful, systematic approach by physicians with special expertise. Under the proper circumstances, elderly patients with lower intestinal bleeding do well, even when surgery is required. An individual's age, by itself, should not preclude aggressive medical care.
