Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn

Frequency and characteristics of ulcerative colitis (UC)

UC tends to become more frequent in Western countries with an estimate of 12,000 cases in Switzerland in 2018. It is an autoimmune disease of multi factorial origin and close to Crohn’s disease which can reach entire digestive tract whereas UC is limited to the colon. Digestive signs are chronic diarrhea that is painful and mucous and bloody in nature. Patients are often fatigued and may also see arthritis type problems.


The goal of treatment is to space out attacks as much as possible by using immunosuppressants or anti-TNF agents or, if there is no response, janus kinase inhibitors. Attacks are treated with salicylic acid derivatives or oral or local corticosteroids.
