Hi and welcome to HW! :) There is a rare instance of Uc where it can attack the rectum and then the ileum (? - I think that's the right area) with no ulceration in between but if there is ulcers that are patchy in between then that is more indicative of Crohns then Uc. Did they do biopsies and if so, was it 100% conclusive that it was Uc? But even with biopsies, Uc and mild CD can mimic each other closely that it can be hard to get a definitive answer.
