Colitis after polytrauma: Case report

William E. Carter, MD, et al.

With multisystem injuries, some of the less urgent problems can be inadequately evaluated, resulting in delayed diagnosis. Across the medical literature, delayed diagnosis and treatment leads to more costly and worse outcomes. This case presentation highlights this issue and its effect in the rehabilitation setting.
