Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) causing severe damage of the luminal gastrointestinal tract. Differential diagnosis between both disease entities is sometimes awkward requiring a multifactorial pathway, including clinical and laboratory data, radiological findings, histopathology and endoscopy. Apart from disease diagnosis, endoscopy in IBD plays a major role in prediction of disease severity and extent (i.e. mucosal healing) for tailored patient management and for screening of colitis‐associated cancer and its precursor lesions. In this state‐of‐the‐art review, ...

Authors: Labetoulle R, Paul S, Roblin X Abstract INTRODUCTION: Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, such as Crohn's disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC), are widespread diseases (with an estimated 2.2 million Europeans affected), and even populations previously considered 'low risk' (such as Japan and India) are witnessing an increasing incidence. CD is a chronic, progressive immunologically driven disease, with an evolution characterized by succession of periods of progression and remission. New physiopathological pathways are continuously being discovered, the more we understand about how the disease appears and prog...

Authors: Xavier S, Cúrdia Gonçalves T, Dias de Castro F, Magalhães J, Rosa B, Moreira MJ, Cotter J Abstract OBJECTIVES: Perianal Crohn's disease (CD) prevalence varies according to the disease location, being particularly frequent in patients with colonic involvement. We aimed to evaluate small bowel involvement and compare small bowel capsule endoscopy findings and inflammatory activity between patients with and without perianal disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective single-center study including 71 patients - all patients with perianal CD (17 patients) who performed a small bowel c...

Conclusion The appendix is important for intestinal homeostasis, preventing the development of certain pathologies. Its resection, regardless of whether or not there is an inflammation after surgery, increases the risk of Crohn's Disease and worsens the prognosis of this pathology, so appendectomy should be avoided in the absence of appendicitis.

Authors: Morávková P, Kohoutová D, Vávrová J, Bureš J Abstract INTRODUCTION: The aim of our study was to assess association of serum S100A4 protein with ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD). METHODS: Study included 118 subjects: 93 patients with CD, 16 with UC and 9 controls. In CD group, 20/93 patients had B1 phenotype, 19/93 B2, 20/93 B3 and 34/93 B2 + B3. L1 involvement was present in 15/93, L2 in 14/93 and L3 in 64/93 patients. Serum S100A4 concentration was investigated in peripheral venous blood samples by means of ELISA. RESULTS: Serum S100A4 was ...
