Ulcerative Colitis

The form of inflammatory bowel disease

A form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), ulcerative colitis is a disease of the large intestine that commonly includes ulcers, or open sores and chronic diarrhea mixed with blood. Ulcerative colitis has similarities to Crohn’s disease and can include periods of exacerbated symptoms. Although ulcerative colitis can sometimes diminish on its own, the disease usually requires treatment to go into remission.
