Inflammatory Bowel Disease - IBD

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) represents a spectrum of chronic disorders affecting the gastrointestinal tract; Crohn disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are the major disorders. When a definite diagnosis of CD or UC cannot be made following colectomy, the disease is referred to as indeterminate colitis (IC). The term inflammatory bowel disease unclassified (IBDU) can be used to reflect clinical and endoscopic evidence of IBD with no small bowel involvement, no histological evidence in favor of CD or UC, and no infection.
