PMID:  7067565     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A young mentally retarded patient with self-abusive behavior managed to dissect between the mucosa and muscularis layers of the anal canal, through the anus, using his fingers; he managed then to strip the mucosal-submucosal layers of his rectum and colon all the way up to the splenic flexure and presented with an unusual two-yard long "rectal prolapse" which was actually stripped colorectal mucosal-submucosal tube. Diagnosis and management of this unusual patient are discussed. The authors could not find any similar case report in the English Medical literature.
