Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

The term inflammatory bowel disease is applied to three conditions which have similar symptoms but are clinically different.

  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crhon’s disease
  • Short bowel syndrome.

In the first two conditions there are mucosal tissue lesions, in the third there may be repeated removal of the affected sections of the intestine - all three leading to typical, similar symptoms.
