Abstract

Colitis cystica profunda (CCP) is a rare benign condition with a controversial etiology. We report a case of CCP in a patient with a history of anal masturbation, supporting an acquired traumatic etiology. Diagnosis was assisted by transrectal ultrasound. The patient was successfully treated by local excision.
