Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic condition in which the lining of the digestive tract becomes inflamed and covered with ulcers. There are two types of IBD: ulcerative colitis, which causes inflammation and ulcers in the lining of the rectum and colon; and Crohn's disease which causes inflammation deeper within the intestinal wall of the small intestine and can occur in other parts of the digestive system including the mouth, oesophagus, and stomach. Although both conditions are characterized by inflammation and ulceration, they are in fact different disease processes.
