Objective The association between extraintestinal manifestations (EIMs) and disease activity suggest a common pathogenetic link with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We report on the association of EIMs and anaemia with long-term disease outcomes, including treatment steps, hospitalization, and surgery in the prospective population-based IBD inception cohort from Veszprem province. Methods Data of 678 incident IBD patients (Crohn’s disease/ulcerative colitis(CD/UC): 331/347) diagnosed from 1st January 2000 to 31st December 2012 were analyzed (CD: m/f: 176/155, median age at diagnosis: 28, IQR: 21–40 years, disease duration: 6, IQR: 2–9 years; UC: m/f: 200/147, median age at diagnosis: 36, IQR: 26–50 years, duration: 7, IQR: 4–10 years). Results EIMs were present in 30% of the CD and 17.3% of the UC patients. In CD, female gender (p = 0.02) need for steroid (p  CD = 0.001, pUC = 0.04), disease location/extent (pCD = 0.02, pUC CD,UC CD UC = 0.002) and hospitalization (pCD = 0.004, pUC
