Preconception counseling of females with inflammatory bowel disease

Publication date: Available online 16 January 2020Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical GastroenterologyAuthor(s): Amihai Rottenstreich, Ariella Bar-Gil ShitritAbstractInflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are commonly diagnosed in women of childbearing age. As such, pregnancy is often encountered in this subset of patients. Management of pregnancy in IBD patients poses numerous challenges as ensuring the safety of the mother and the fetus is required. Disease remission prior to pregnancy is a key determinant of both the course of IBD throughout gestation and pregnancy outcome. Thus, adequate preconception care is of paramount importance in order to achieve optimal maternal and perinatal outcomes and maintain disease quiescence throughout gestation. In addition, preconception care has a major role in improving patient's knowledge, concerns and misbeliefs related to reproductive-health issues among IBD patients. In this review, we discuss the various aspects involved in the preconception care of IBD patients.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTreating moderate-to-severe inflammatory bowel disease has become increasingly complex as the array of available biologics increases. Moreover, tofacitinib, the first small molecule approved for IBD, is available for use in ulcerative colitis. Choosing the right biologic, for the right patient, at the right time, can be a confusing and daunting task for clinicians.Recent FindingsIn this review, we summarize the evidence for first-line use of the available biologics by disease state. Special circumstances for consideration including rapidity of action, safety, comparative effectiveness, postoperativ...

In these countries, as amoebic colitis shares similar clinical symptoms and endoscopic features with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), these cases can be easily unrecognized and misdiagnosed.In this case report, we discuss the case of an adult patient with invasive intestinal amoebiasis, who was init...
