Abstract : Inflammatory bowel disease is a major gastrointestinal disease presenting therapeutic and rehabilitation challenges in both developed and developing countries. Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are two major forms of inflammatory bowel disease that keep on relapsing and reappearing in their natural course with different complications. Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract commonly the terminal ileum or the perianal region and cause transmural inflammation. It can be associated with fistula, stricture, and abscesses. Ulcerative colitis is specific inflammation of the colon and has an association with many non-Gastrointestinal (GI) organs. The exact etiology of both inflammatory processes remains unknown, individuals’ susceptibility, external environment, gut microbiota, and immune response all play significant roles in the pathogenesis of IBD.1
