Crohn's disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of inflammatory conditions of the colon and the intestine. The two most prominent IBD conditions are Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis. Although similar in symptoms, they are very different conditions where the main difference is the location and nature of the inflammatory changes. Furthermore, IBD should be distinguished from Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or spastic colon. IBS is a functional bowel disorder characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort and bloating. IBS is often regarded as a syndrome or collection of symptoms rather than a disease. Due to the entirely different pathology, diagnostic differentiation between IBD and IBS is clinically of utmost importance.
