CUC has a prevalence of 20-40/100,000 while Crohn's has a prevalence of 70-150/100,000.
CUC is 2-3 times more prevalent than Crohn's Disease.
Crohn's disease is 2-4 times more prevalent than CUC.
CUC has a prevalence of 10/100,000 while Crohn's has a prevalence of 1/100,000.
Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Chronic Ulcerative Colitis (CUC)
In 50% of cases, the disease affects both the terminal ileum and colon. In 30%, only the ileum, and in 20% of cases, limited to the colon.
In 50% of cases, the disease affects the colon only. In 30% of cases, both the colon and the terminal ileum, and in 20% of cases, limited to the terminal ileum.
In 75% of cases, the disease affects both the terminal ileum and the colon. In the remainding 25%, the disease afflicts only the colon.
In 95% of cases, the disease affects only the terminal ileum. The remainding 5% occurs in the Duodenum.
In 50% of cases, the disease affects both the duodenum and the terminal ileum. In 30%, it affects the colon and the rectum. And in 20% of cases, only the colon.
Inflammation extending through the entire wall of the intestine forming patch-like designs seen in Crohn's disease.
Non-caseating granulomas within the mucosa and submucosa associated with fibrosis of the muscularis and the serosa seen in Crohn's disease.
Creeping fat on the surface of the mucosa seen in CUC.
Creeping fat on the surface of the mucosa arranged in a patch-like formation seen in Crohn's disease.
Shallow mucosal defects overlying lymphoid aggregets which suggest immune cell involvement seen in Crohn's disease.
The narrowing of the fibrotic intestines causing stricture.
Inflammation of the serosa leading to adhesions with adjacent intestinal loops.
Shallow mucosal defects overlying lymphoid aggregates.
Cobblestone appearance interspersed between more normal appearing mucosa.
Bleeding, rectal involvement, and fever.

CUC with raw, ulcerated hemorrhagic mucosa.
A diffuse disease that does not usually extend into the ileum aside from mild inflammation of the terminal ileum ("backwash ileitis")
Initially starts as rectal lesions and spreads proximally, eventually involving the entire colon.
A disease leading to the involvement of the colon which is typically segmental.
An Intestinal Inflammation of unknown etitology that most often involves the colon.
A disease typically limited to thecolonic mucosa and submucosa.
Thick, purulent, and prone to bleeding
Shows cobblestone pattern with creeping fat.
Prone to deep fissures penetrating into the muscle wall.
Sandpaper, friable, and prone to bleeding.

They are due to neoplastic epithelium that show no evidence of normal differentiation.
Small remnants of inlfammed mucosa that appear to be elevated over the base of the surrounding ulcerations
Dilated glands due to the obstructed flow of mucus.
Invading aliens pushing through the lumen trying to make their way into the vasculature.
Small remnants of inflammed mucosa that appear to be elevated over the base of the surrounding ulcerations known as inflammatory pseudopolyps.
Atrophy of the crypts with aggregates of lymphocytes in the base of the crypts known as crypt abscesses.
Mild inflammation of the terminal ileum that can occur in CUC known as backwash ileitis.
Colonic ulcerations that spread through the entire colon and become confluent during ulcerative colitis known as serpiginous ulcerations.
