Is it possible to have colitis but not ulcerative colitis?

I am waiting for biopsy results from my colonoscopy, but the doctor mentioned that the inflammation was due to colitis. Are there other types of colitis that are not ulcerative colitis?

Yes. They told me I had "nonspecific colitis" while they waited on the biopsies. When they came back they said it was all clear and I asked about the colitis... she said it was inflammation but they didn't know from what.

I know where are other types, like from bacteria, etc.
sorry I'm not more help!

Thanks for the reply ZoeGirl. I hope that's what I have and not ulcerative colitis. Did you need to do any treatment, or have followup testing?
