A Retrospective Study

Author: S. Padma, R. Pramila

Category: Healthcare

Abstract:Colonoscopy is the main investigation to detect the abnormalities in the colon and it is the main supportive measure for clinical diagnosis. Colonoscopic biopsy helps to get a definitive diagnosis of colonic diseases, which helps the clinician to give appropriate treatment.
Aim of the Study: To know the pattern of colonic diseases by colonoscopy and histopathological examination in Chennai Medical College Hospital & Research centre (CMCH&RC) Irungalur Thiruchirapalli District. a tertiary care hospital in rural part of
south India.
Materials and Methods: A retrospective study of patients who had undergone colonoscopy from November 2014 to December 2017 at CMCH&RC was done. Data, from endoscopy register & from histopathology register during that period were collected and analysed.
Results: A total of 919 patients registered for colonoscopy. Male: Female ratio was 614:305.913 patients tolerated the procedure. The most common indications were bleeding per rectum 208 cases (22.78%), clinical suspicion of irritable bowel syndrome 151 cases (16.54%), constipation 115 cases (12.60%), abdominal pain 62 cases (6.79%). The colonscopic findings were, normal study in 47.65%, hemorrhoids in 17.42%, polyps in 8.65%, carcinoma in 6.68%, inflammatory bowel disease in 7.56% of case. About 137 biopsy taken by colonoscopy during this period. The results were malignant lesions in 52, non specific colitis in 27 , benign neoplastic lesions in 14, ulcerative colitis were 13 cases.
Conclusion: The commonest lesion by colonoscopy was hemorrhoids, Histopathological examination supports the colonoscopic study. Commonest lesion by histopathology was malignancy. The increasing incidence of malignancy in younger age group needs further prospective study.

The lower gastrointestinal tract extend from caecum to anal canal which is affected by both neoplastic and non neoplastic diseases. The various diseases affecting the colon are infections, inflammatory diseases, tuberculosis, polyps, colorectal  tumours. There may be overlapping of the symptoms in these diseases, which sometimes find difficult to get the final diagnosis clinically1. The colonoscopy helps to locate the exact site of lesion and the type of lesion, Colonic mucosal  biopsy  by colonoscopy helps to clinch correct diagnosis.  

 Colonoscopy and colonoscopic biopsy has radically changed the diagnosis and treatment of  lower gastrointestinal tract diseases1. Diagnosing a polyp and removal by colonoscopy and histopathological examination has reduced many open surgical procedures2 . In developing countries like India where tuberculosis and infective pathology are common, the incidence inflammatory bowel diseases are showing increasing trend. The histopathological examination of colonic mucosal biopsies by colonoscopy plays an important role in diagnosing inflammatory bowel disease3 as well as early detection of colonic epithelial tumours4.

The aim of our study was to know lower gastrointestinal disease pattern by colonoscopy and also by histopathplogical examination  in  our area a rural part of south India.


It is a retrospective study of the available data from colonoscopy procedures performed by the medical gastroenterologist at Medical gastroenterology department at Chennai  Medical College  Hospital and Research centre (CMCH and RC)  Irungalur  Thiruchirapalli Dt. a tertiary care hospital in rural part of south India. Data from November 2014 to December 2017 was reviewed. Histopathological reports  of the colonoscopic mucosal biopsies done during the period was also reviewed.

Patients with any of these symptoms of (Table.2)

Bleeding per rectum

Clinical suspicion of Irritable Bowel syndrome, carcinoma colon


Chronic diarrhea

Abdominal pain


Right iliac fossa pain and masswere included. Inpatients from wards as well as outpatients with any of these symptoms were examined by the medical gastroenterologist and colonoscopy was done selectively. Colonoscopy was done after proper bowel preparation. Colonoscopy was done without sedation. Biopsies were taken whenever there was suspicious lesion by colonoscopy. Proper preservation and transferring of biopsy specimen was done as per pathologist guidance. Biopsy specimens were analysed by pathologists and the reports were furnished.

Data analysis includes

All the cases posted for colonoscopy, including the cases where the colonoscopy could not reach the caecum & the data reported in the histopathological examination register.


Total of 919 patients were selected for colonoscopy. 913 patients underwent colonoscopy Table.2. The number of males: females were 614:299. The age and sex distribution of cases shown in Table 1.

The common indications were bleeding per rectum 208 cases (22.78%), Irritable bowel syndrome 151 cases (16.54%), constipation 115 cases (12.60%), chronic diarrhea 59 cases (6.46%), ileo caecal kochs 48 cases (5.26%), anal fissure 36 cases (3.94%), anemia 46 cases (5.04%), fistula in ano 38 cases (4.16%), abdominal pain 62 cases (6.79%),carcinoma colon 33 cases (3.61%), right iliac fossa pain and mass 12 cases (1.31%), surveillance scopy (which includes colonoscopy done for inflammatory bowel disease, melena, alcoholic liver disease, hepatomegaly, portal hypertension, multiple gastric polyps etc.) 105 cases (11.50%)( Table.2).

The colonoscopic findings were Normal study in 435 cases (47.65%), Hemorrhoids in 159 cases (17.42%), Carcinoma in 61 cases (6.68%), Inflammatory bowel disease  (both ulcerative colitis and chrons disease) in 69 cases (7.56%), Polyp colon in 79 cases (8.65%), Kochs lesion in 20 cases (2.19%), Proctitis in 14 cases (1.53%), Diverticular disease in 16 cases (1.75%), Solitary rectal ulcer in 11 cases (1.20%),Non specific ulcers rectum in 4 cases (0.44%), Pancolitis in 4 cases (0.44%), others (caecal telengectasia, porta hypertensive colopathy, pseudo membranous colitis, extraneous compression etc.) 37cases (4.05%) ,and incomplete study in 4 cases (0.44%) (Table .3).

Out of 79 cases of polyps 16 were diminutive polyps, 30 were sessile polyps, 33 were colonic polyps. Polypectomy done in 14 cases.

Colonoscopy showed ulcero proliferative lesion in 41 cases, circumferential lesion in 6 cases, ulcero infiltrative lesion in 3 cases, synchronous lesion in 3 cases, nodulo ulcerative lesion in 2 cases, ulcerative lesion in 2 cases, pigmented lesion in 1 case, polypoid lesion in 1 case, recto sigmoid proliferative lesion with multiple polyps in 1 case, verrucous lesion 1 case. 18 (29.50%) lesions were in proximal colon and 43 (70.50%) lesions were in distal colon.(Table.4)

Total of 137 colonic  biopsies taken and was analysed by the pathologist. The malignant lesion reported were in 52 biopsies (37.95%),non specific colitis in 27 (19.70%), benign neoplastic lesions in 14 (10.21%),ulcerative colitis in 13 (9.45%), tuberculous colitis in 9 (6.56%) chrons colitis in 4 (2.92%), acute infective colitis in 3 (2.18%), pseudo membranous colitis in 3 (2.18%), acute on chronic colitis in 2 (1.45%), adenoma with dysplasia in 1 (0.73%), chronic eosinophilic colitis in 1 (0.73%), chronic lymphocytic colitis in 1 (0.73%), ischemic colitis in 1 (0.73%),  diverticulitis and diverticulitis with dysplasia each 1 (0.73% each),solitary rectal ulcer 1(0.73%), normal rectal mucosa with surface ulceration in 1(0.73%), reports not traceable in 2.(Table.5).

Of the 137 biopsy specimens 14 were polypectomy specimen, adenomatous polyp in 1specimen,adenomatous polyp with dysplasia in 1 specimen, hyperplastic polyps in 4 specimens , inflammatory polyp in 3 specimens ,hamartomatous polyp in 2 specimens, juvenile polyp in 1 specimen, retention polyp in  1 specimen, 1 polyp was adeno carcinoma.(Table.6)

Of 14 benign neoplastic lesions reported by histopathological examination, 13 specimens were from polypectomy and 1 specimens were mucosal biopsies from colonoscopically suspected malignant lesions where the report was tubular adenoma.

Of  the 61 lesions suspected by colonoscopy, histopathological examination showed malignancy in 52 cases (adeno carcinoma  in 46, melanoma in 2, gastro intestinal stromal tumour in 1,carcinoid tumour in 1, baso squamous  in carcinoma 1,carcinoma in situ in 1 case) (Table.7).5 lesions were benign (1 tubular adenoma, 1adenoma with dysplasia, 2 chrons, 1kochs).4 results not traceable. The age  and sex wise distribution  of malignancy shown in Table.8.


The patients with lower gastrointestinal disease may present with single or combination of symptoms like bleeding per rectum, anemia, abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, constipation, altered bowel habits5. The commonest indication for colonoscopy in our study was bleeding per rectum-22.78% and this was the commonest indication for colonoscopy in the study by H N Dhinesh et al 6(24.8%) and Md Abu Sayeed et al 7(32.53%).

The hemorrhoids  (17.42%)  was the most common colonoscopic finding in our study and was similar to the study by Raju H. Badiger et al8 (48.4%). In our study the polyps constitute to 8.65% of total cases which was similar to the study by Md Abu Sayeed et al7 who reported as 8.73%.

The colonoscopic suspicion of malignancy in our study was 6.68% which was almost equal to the study by Dhinesh et al(7.06%) .The most common location of carcinoma was distal colon 70.50% in our study which was similar to the study by Musthafa et al9 who reported as 74%.The mean age of presentation of malignancy was 69 years in the western population10. Deo et al11  reported mean age  at presentation was 45.3 years. In our study the mean age at presentation was 55.13 years.

In our  study the  out of 135 histopathological reports, non neoplastic lesions were 51.84%  and neoplastic lesions were 48.16%, which is similar  to the study by Abilash et alwhere the non neoplastic lesion (60.8%) was more than neoplastic lesion.

In non neoplastic lesions non specific colitis constitute to 19.7% in our study which was low compared to the studies by Abilash et al1 Abduikader12 , which was 52.6% and 46.7% respectively. The chronic non specific colitis may represent the early stage of inflammatory diseases like ulcerative colitis and chrons disease.13‚14

Ulcerative colitis was reported in 9.50%  of cases in our study, which was less compared to the study by Abduikader12 Saira Bashir et al15 , whose reports were 11.8%, 31.7% respectively.

Tuberculosis was seen in 6.56% of the cases which was slightly high compared to the studies by Ritesh Sulegaon et al16, Pavani Manthini et al17  whose findings were 5.26% and 4.9%.

In our study malignancies were seen in 37.95%   (52 cases) of biopsies and 88.46% (46 cases) were adenocarcinomas among them. Out of these adenocarcinomas, 54.34% (25 cases) were well differentiated, 34.78% (16cases)were moderately differentiated, 4.34% (2 cases) were poorly differentiated, 6.52% (3 cases) were mucinous adenocarcinomas. In the study by Chaitanya et al18   the predominant finding was well diffentiated adenocarcinoma 63.16%, moderately differentiated  was 13.16%, poorly differentiated was 2.63%, mucinous adenocarcinomas was15.79%. He reported 2.63% as neuro endocrine tumour which was little high compared to our study of 1.92%,

Rectal malignant melanoma account for 0.2% to 0.3% of all malignant melanomas, 0.1 to 4.6% of  malignant tumours of rectum and anus19. In our study 2 cases (3.8%)of melanoma rectum reported and it was presented in the age group of 50 to 60. Carcinoma in situ was identified in IBD with  pseudopolyps. The GIST & carcinoid  tumour was reported in the age group of 21-30. 40.38% of  malignant lesions were below 50 years which was high compared to 36% reported  by  Rajbhandari et al14. Exposure to chemicals used in agriculture for growing rice and soya beans are  one of the major environmental carcinogen responsible  for colorectal carcinoma among adolescents20.  Since our study was retrospective, which lacks the environmental factors, food habits, familial history, it needs further prospective study to find out the increased  incidence below 50  and also the causative factors of malignancy.

The incidence of malignancy in sessile polyps and diminutive polyp and polyp less than 1cm is less. Polypectomy was not done routinely in all cases in our study. But follow up colonoscopy could pick up malignant changes if occurs.


This retrospective colonoscopic study helped us to know the pattern of lower gastrointestinal diseases in our area. Though the normal study was high, colonoscopy helped to pick up malignant lesions in younger age group. There was good correlation between colonoscopic findings and histopathological findings in malignancy. Histopathological examinations detected benign features in malignant lesion suspected by colonoscopy, thereby helps the clinician to avoid major surgeries.  It needs further prospective study to evaluate the factors that causes malignancy in our area.
