The term inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, refers to both ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Ulcerative colitis affects the colon (the large intestine). Crohn’s disease can involve any part of the intestine, from the mouth to the anus. Both diseases cause inflammation inside the intestine, but they may also cause serious problems in other parts of the body.
