ULCERATIVE COLITIS Overview

WHAT IS ULCERATIVE COLITIS?


Ulcerative colitis is an INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE (IBD) in which there is long lasting inflammation of the large intestine (colon & rectum). There is irritation and swelling of the innermost lining of the colon which causes ulceration of the colon.

The inflammation usually starts from the rectum till lower colon but whole of the large intestine may be involved. Chron’s disease is another somewhat similar disease like ulcerative colitis but may affect any part of the gastro intestinal tract and all layers of bowel walls.

Ulcerative colitis being chronic disease is ongoing, life long disease with relapses or flare ups which means phases of good health and symptoms of inflammation.

Ulcerative colitis may be debilitating disease and sometimes can cause life threatening complications.
