Inflammatory Bowel Disease
The two major types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
The main difference between Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis is the nature and location of the inflammation. Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus . Ulcerative colitis is restricted to the large bowel or colon.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a term that refers to a group of chronic inflammatory conditions of the bowel.
