Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Types, Causes, and Risk Factors

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a band of inflammatory conditions of the colon and small intestine. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are the most important types of inflammatory bowel disease. It not only affects the small and large intestine but also affects the mouth, oesophagus, stomach and the anus.

The following symptoms are abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and severe internal cramps/muscle spasms in the region of the pelvis and weight loss. Diagnosis is generally by assessment of inflammatory markers in stool followed by colonoscopy with biopsy of pathological lesions.

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Microscopic colitis
  • Diversion colitis
  • Indeterminate colitis
