Our Diagnosis

  • Colonic Spirochetosis

The Miraca Difference

  • Provides a reasonable explanation for this patient’s diarrhea and weight loss (spirochetosis can also cause rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, purulent discharge, and an appendicitis-like picture)
  • Avoidance of complications related to immunosuppressive therapy
  • Identifies a condition that may respond to antibiotic therapy
  • Recognition of a subtle finding that may be easily overlooked
