Abstract

The term inflammatory bowel disease includes two similar, but distinct intestinal diseases so far of unknown ethiology - ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. They used to be considered diseases of young adults, but in recent decades they have become more common among children, with characteristics different from those in adults. In the past they were considered severe, incurable diseases, but today, owing to modern nutrition, medical and surgical treatment, both diseases have became well manageable, even though complete recovery can not yet be expected.
