The rectal inflammatory originated strictures constitute a rare cause of intestinal obstruction. We present a 30-year-old male patient with a history of HIV and protctitis caused by Chalmydia trachomatis and HSV-2, in which develops a low intestinal obstruction refractory to medical treatment. Surgery was performed with good clinical evolution. The medical treatment constitutes the fundamental basis of the therapy in these patients. Despite that, when fibrotic stenoses are not treatable medical or endoscopically, they often require surgical treatment. We must pay attention to the proctitis infectious diseases as a cause of rectal stenosis, especially by Chlamydia trachomatis, and assess surgical option in refractory cases.
