What diseases could cause what appears to be flesh/intestinal lining in someone's stool?
I don't know but that's gross.
That's an interesting question. Anybody have any ideas?
Thank you for your truly valuable input. Anybody else have any thoughts?

Could I get a few real responses please?
Man, that stuff is just priceless. But honestly, something I found was:
Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Its a genetic disease though so this one wouldn't just sneak up on you.
What about perhaps Chron's or Ulcerative Colitis?
or cancer, or some clotting problem seen with liver failure...
if this is for you, please PLEASE see a real physician, and don't rely on us to diagnose. That is not what these boards are for, and it could be a very serious problem.
It's not for me. It's for a friend and he's seen/currently seeing a doc for it.
it's very difficult to tell without a proper history...
Does your friend regularly eat flesh/intestinal lining?
this is important.
Dang. I hope your friend gets better. Let us know when it is figured out.
Maybe he has intestinal parasites that are eating up his intestines. Those damn Giardia lamblias are bastards, but those tacos in stingy dirty joints are too irresistible!!!
Mexico has some of the nastiest baddest amibas in the planet, so those kinds of findings aren't unusual down here. Nasty Shigella infections are't unheard of. I've known many middle class people that for one time they ate oysters they got one of those nasty life threatening infections. You'd think they ate oysters in a stingy street joint, but all of them ate at an "apparently" reliable restaurant.
And yet I insist on eating tacos in the street because they are so cheap and tasty. Ah, us doctors never learn!!!
I think my body has developed a sort of immunity towards those amibas because I never get stomach infections and I eat in really stingy and dirty street joints.
No, the person is a vegetarian. The flesh bits are a few mm x mm and are dark reddish-pink, like the color of liver. There is no blood grossly present.
It's unmistakably raw flesh/meat.
Pain? Fever? Diarrhea, constipation? Nausea, vomiting? Color of stool? Frequency of stool? How long has this been going on? Change in diet? Travel Hx?
It could be a lot of things. Might just be undigested pink stuff he ate, like bits of vitamin pills, fruit skins, stuff like that. If he has other associated symptoms, it is most likely infectious, though it could be IBD.
majahops = umean2tellme? And if so how lame is this :
OP, majahops, you guys should go see a doc with your meaty anal leakage. SDN is not for medical advice.
Holy multiple personalities, Batman!
this thread delivers.
Yes! Finally a name for my new death metal band.
This has been cross-posted in several forums by different usernames.
Sounds like what happened to me the last time I ate white castle.
It must be a fleshy feces epidemic then.....
I'm appalled that this thread has been allowed to stay open.
Usually mods are Johnny-on-the-spot closing these - what makes this thread so special that instead we have imods jumping into the fray on this one?
SDN (and the internet in general) is not for medical advice. It sets a pretty harmful precedent man. Those of you trying to take a history should be ashamed of yourselves for encouraging it. And those of you making fun of the OP should also be ashamed of yourselves. And those of you holier-than-thou's out there posting that SDN is not for medical advice should be especially ashamed of yourselves. We're all scumbags.
I got to this thread by accident by clicking on several different profiles/links and its grossing me out.
Best avatar EVER.
This thread reminds me of this.
Mine?! Aw Thanks!
Somebody chop up some red peppers in an egg-substitute omelette? I'm sorry, you eat a diet that high in fiber and you're bound to get bits. I'm betting red bell peppers.
Hate to say it. Pics?
The mods must all be on a cushy retreat. SDN likely got some bailout money and they are spending it on a lavish vacation. In the mean time, we all get to post to threads like this while the parents are away. WOO HOO.
