Erythematous mucosa in the colon
Erythematous mucosa in the colon, defined as an increased redness of the mucosa, due to an increase in its hemoglobin content because of increased blood flow (a). This should be distinguished from a congested mucosa, defined as a swelling of the mucosa due to an increase in the thickness of the mucosa, occurring most often in association with an inflammatory process where permeability of cell membranes is altered and the extracellular osmolarity is modified (b).
