Inflammatory bowel disease..

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) include a group of chronic disorders that cause inflammation or ulceration in the small and large intestines. Most often IBD is classified as:Ulcerative colitisUlcerative colitis--causes ulceration and inflammation of the inner lining of the colon and rectum.Crohn'sCrohn'sdiseasedisease--an inflammation that extends into the deeper layers of the intestinal wall, and also may affect other parts olayers of the f digestive tract, including the mouth, esophagus, stomach, and smdigestive small all intestine.

Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease

cause similar symptoms that often resemble other conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome. The correct diagnosis may take some time. Inflammatory bowel disease may also be referred to as colitis, enteritis, ileitis, and proctitis


CROHNS DISEASE (CD) Etiology and Epidemiology of CROHNS DISEASE Pathology of CROHNS DISEASE Clinical picture of CROHNS DISEASE Diagnosis of CROHNS DISEASE Differential Diagnosis of CROHNS DISEASE Prognosis of CROHNS DISEASE Treatment of CROHNS DISEASE

Traditional view

Crohns disease

is characterized by acute and chronic inflammation of the small and large intestine and structures apart from the bowel (BA Lashner in
Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, J Kirsner ed. 5the ed WB Saunders, 2000)

Ulcerative colitis

is an inflammatory disease of the colon of unknown etiology (PB Miner in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, J
Kirsner ed. 5the ed WB Saunders, 2000)

Porto criteria for the diagnosis of Pediatric IBD

Indeterminate colitis can only be diagnosed after a full diagnostic work-up. This must include colonoscopy with intubation of the terminal ileum, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and small bowel follow through. Diagnosis of indeterminate colitis is suggested by histology showing acute and chronic inflammation with architectural changes confined to the colon, absence of abnormalities suggesting lymphocytic or allergic colitis, or CD, a normal small bowel follow through or enteroclysis and no definite classification of CD or UC possible with histology.

Upper GI involvement and IBD

The difference in distribution between CD and UC is a feature which is used for the differential diagnosis! Upper GI Involvement is considered as an argument against a diagnosis of UC But? Is UC confined to the colon

x-ray: Barium enema x-ray may show reflux of barium into the terminal ileum with irregularity, nodularity, stiffness, wall thickening, and a narrowed lumen. A small-bowel series with spot x-rays of the terminal ileum usually most clearly shows the nature and extent of the lesion. An upper GI series without small-bowel follow-through usually misses the diagnosis.

Laboratory findings

Laboratory findings are nonspecific: -anemia, -leukocytosis, -hypoalbuminemia, - ESR, C-reactive proteins.

Elevated alkaline phosphatase and glutamyltranspeptidase accompanying colonic disease often reflect primary sclerosing cholangitis.

Sigmoidoscopy An internal examination of the rectum, distal sigmoid colon, and large bowel using a type of small camera (flexible sigmoidoscope sigmoidoscope). ). This test can help diagnose: 1.Inflammatory bowel disease 2.Bowel obstruction 3.Colon cancer 4.Colon polyps 5.Diverticulosis 6.Causes of diarrhea 7.causes of abdominal pain This test can also be used to: 1.Determine the cause of blood, mucus, or pus in the stool 2.Confirm findings of another test or X-rays 3.Take a biopsy of a growth

Sigmoidoscopy with biopsy showed: - Non Non-specific inflammation of the rectal mucosa with some granulomas but without necrosis.

Crohn's Disease Small bowel is involved in 80% of cases Rectosigmoid is often spared; colonic involvement is usually right-sided. Gross rectal bleeding is absent in 15-25% of cases. Fistula, mass, and abscess development is common. Perianal lesions are significant in 25-35%. Ulcerative Colitis Disease is confined to the colon. Rectosigmoid is invariably involved; colonic involvement is usually leftsided. Gross rectal bleeding is always present. Fistulas do not occur. Significant perianal lesions never occur.

Crohn's Disease
On x-ray, bowel wall is affected asymmetrically and segmentally, with "skip areas" between diseased segments. Endoscopic appearance is patchy, with discrete ulcerations separated by segments of normalappearing mucosa.

Ulcerative Colitis
Bowel wall is affected symmetrically and uninterruptedly from rectum proximally (ahaustral Colon). Inflammation is uniform and diffuse (continuous superficial inflammation with granular)

Crohn's Disease
Microscopic inflammation and fissuring extend transmurally; lesions are often highly focal in distribution.

Ulcerative Colitis
Inflammation is confined to mucosa (diffuse, continuous, superficial inflammation) except In severe cases.

Epithelioid (sarcoid-like) Typical epithelial granulomas detected in granulomas do not occur. bowel wall or lymph nodes in 25-50% of cases (pathognomonic).
