With disease processes that involve the large bowel but leave the rectum free (Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, neoplasms), a surgical procedure used for their treatment will result in an anastomosis that may be seen during rectoscopy. During the postoperative follow-up period, careful attention should be given to any recurrence, which in cases of Crohn’s disease is seen very early on rectoscopy.
