Thirthy-four patients with attacks of distal ulcerative colitis were treated in a double-blind randomized study with 3 mg of topically administered beclomethasone dipropionate or 30 mg of prednisolone phosphate. The effects of the steroid enemas were monitored with endoscopic, clinical and histological parameters. It is concluded that in the topical treatment of ulcerative colitis, BDP may be preferable to PP.
