Ulcerative colitis is a chronic idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) of the gastrointestinal tract that affects the mucosal lining of the colon. It commonly occurs in people aged between 15 years and 30 years. Ulcerative colitis is one of the two major types of IBD along with Crohn’s disease. Unlike Crohn’s disease, which can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract, ulcerative colitis characteristically involves only the large bowel. The actual cause of the disease is still unidentified. However, the available information suggests that it may be the result of an over reactive immune response to normal bacteria and other substances in the gastrointestinal tract. The prominent symptoms of ulcerative colitis are abdominal pain and bloody diarrhea due to inflammation and the development of open sores (ulcers) in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. Other symptoms of ulcerative colitis include abdominal cramping, nausea, fever, skin ulcers, loss of appetite, weight loss, joint pain, and fatigue. Severe complications of ulcerative colitis include hemorrhage, colon rupture, and the possible development of colon cancer. About 20% of people with ulcerative colitis have a family member with the disease or with Crohn's disease, which is also a type of IBD. There is no known cure for ulcerative colitis till now. However, therapies are available that may significantly reduce the signs and symptoms of ulcerative colitis and even bring about a long-term remission.
