Inflammatory bowel disease
Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic condition of unknown origin characterized by severe inflammation and mucosal destruction in the intestine. There are two main forms: Crohns disease, which can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract, but is most common in the colon and terminal ileum; and ulcerative colitis, which is a mucosal inflammation involving the rectum and colon.
