ABSTRACT
A 2-year-old girl, previously healthy, was brought to our emergency department due to abdominal pain (cramping), following recurrent hematochezia after an accidental hydrogen peroxide enema (35%, 5 mL) by her caregiver. She was hospitalized and admitted to the pediatric department and treated with NPO (nil per os), intravenous fluid, and parenteral antibiotic therapy. Laboratory, radiologic, endoscopic evaluations were performed. She was discharged with full recovery 10 days after admission. This may be the first case report of acute chemical colitis by accidental hydrogen peroxide enema in children.
Key words: Colitis, Child, Hydrogen peroxide
