Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
There are approximately 12000 patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in Switzerland. IBD can be debilitating not only because of the direct consequences in the gut but also because of extraintestinal manifestations. An early diagnosis is the key in defining optimal therapeutic interventions. The management is multidisciplinary and the general practitioner should work in direct collaboration with a gastroenterologist. Optimal management should aim at inducing and maintaining remission as well as reducing the risk of complications such as abcesses, fistulas or colorectal cancer.
