A gyulladásos bélbetegségek extraintestinalis manifesztációi

Research output: Review article


Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are systemic disorders. Bowel symptoms are the predominant manifestations, however during the course of the disease a lot of intestinal and extraintestinal complications may occur. Systemic complications are responsible for substantial co-morbidity and they have negative influence on the quality of life. A part of the extraintestinal symptoms seem to have common pathogenetic background with IBD, while others are the consequences of subsequent metabolic and endocrine abnormalities or may relate to local complications and adverse effects of treatment. Growing evidence is available on the role of genetic and immunologic factors in the pathogenesis of extraintestinal manifestations. Most important systemic complications are: peripheral and axial arthritides, osteoporosis, uveitis, erythema nodosum, pyoderma gangraenosum, primary sclerosing cholangitis, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, different types of anaemia, thromboembolism, kidney stones and urinary complications. Cooperation with the specialists is very important in the diagnosis and treatment of these comlications. During follow up of IBD patients special attention is needed to monitor possible extraintestinal manifestations.
