Abstract Haemorrhagic radiation-induced proctitis is a serious complication of radiotherapy of pelvic organs. In severe cases, massive haemorrhage may necessitate hospitalization and repeated transfusions. Application of formaldehyde under direct vision is one of the most efficient treatments. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of this treatment as well as the histological changes induced by formaldehyde on the rectal mucosa.
