Mucus in the stool - Definition


Definition


Stool is the material that is evacuated by the body through the rectum during defecation. It is possible to have traces of mucus in the stool, mucus is a thick and sticky substance which is most often white. Only a large amount of mucus in the stool should cause alarm because it can be an indicator of isolated or chronic inflammation of the colon, notably in the case of inflammatory bowel diseases or IBD's such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Mucus can also be found in the stool without any digestive tract disorder, like in shigellosis for example. Mucus in the stool is often loose stool, and is sometimes accompanied by blood: this is called bloody-mucoid stool.
