A case of a 14-year-old male patient is reported, diagnosed with solitary rectal ulcer syndrome and showing rectal bleeding and pain, excessive straining and tenesmus as main symptoms. Rectal ulcerous lesion was detected through endoscopy and its definitive diagnosis was established by biopsy. Typical histology, clinical history and endoscopic appearance distinguish solitary rectal ulcer from other rectal ulcer-associated etiology. Because this is less frequent pathology and there are no national reports on the same, this case has been reported and a revision of literature made accordingly.
