Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis, collectively part of the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), are both diseases of the gastrointestinal tract that arise in genetically susceptible individuals. Both CD and ulcerative colitis, though clinically different entities, are thought to be part of a spectrum of diseases where environmental and immunologic factors determine the extent and severity of clinical manifestations.
