Abstract

Ulcerative colitis (UC) has a prevalence of 1 in 1000 inhabitants in Switzerland. The diagnosis of UC is based on a typical clinical presentation that involves bloody diarrhea, characteristic endoscopic features with continuous inflammation involving the rectum, and compatible histology. UC develops in genetically susceptible individuals with a dysregulated mucosal immune system. This article highlights latest insights into the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and therapy of UC.
